Friends & Alumni
No institution can thrive and continue to offer quality education without the generosity of faithful alumni and friends. Being called to ministry is an exciting venture, but one that does not come without expense. You have the opportunity to play an integral part in the equipping of servant leaders who engage the mission of Jesus Christ.
We have been exploring some of the principles of competency-based theological education. Let’s continue our conversation by describing the six organizational practices that create fertile soil for CBTE. Taken together, these principles and practices are intended to create a platform on which a vast array of discipleship journeys can be built.
At the close of last week’s post, I wrote, “How then, one may ask, does the seminary ensure students develop and display mastery of each outcome with the level of specificity needed for a particular context?” It is a question I am commonly asked. Sometimes people are not always pleased with my answer because I usually respond with the question.
Let’s look another CBTE principle that undergirds Kairos. We have reviewed collaborative mission, mentored teamwork , contextualized discipleship, and customized mastery. Our focus today is integrated outcomes. We contend that competency-based theological education has the potential to call us back to a form of education that values relationships.
Let's look at what it means to customize one’s journey toward and demonstration of mastery. This builds on our previous reviews of collaborative mission, mentored teamwork, and contextualized discipleship. Mastery can be an intimating word. Do we ever really “master” anything? We should all be invested in a process of ongoing development.
