Course Description

This course is designed to help you enter people’s interior lives at a meaningful level and make a lasting difference as they deal with life’s struggles and crises. Some people call this type of help “counseling.” Others call this help “pastoring.” And perhaps others think of this kind of involvement as what one friend does for another friend. Larry Crabb uses the word SoulCare, with its focus on the inner life, where we become who we were intended and long to be.

Group Dynamics is a  course for anyone who leads a ministry group of one kind or another. Groups are the heartbeat of any ministry. That is where the personal touch happens—where hearts are opened, needs are met, lives are changed. Without feeling connected, people may participate in our ministry groups, but will they be changed as a result? It isn’t what we learn in our groups that transforms lives; it’s doing something differently because of what we’ve learned. Join us in exploring 10 effective ways to guide ministry groups in “Group Dynamics.” We have to stop doing what comes naturally and start doing what works!

Theology can be intimidating for beginners. Many students have been overwhelmed by the diversity of opinions and sheer volume of information to comprehend.

Focusing on the overarching theme of God’s Lordship, Dr. Frame uses three “Lordship Attributes” (control, authority and presence) to organize the doctrines and help listeners remember and apply them to life.
