What are the advantages of taking this course? There are some obvious benefits:

  • We all have emotions. A large part of loving God and loving others well involves managing our emotions well when they go awry.
  • The one-week format allows you see parallels in different emotional experiences and approaches to managing them well that would be easy to miss in a traditional 3-month semester.
  • The intensive format allows you to complete 3 credits hours in a short period of time.

There are other benefits which may not be so obvious.

  • Each emotion addressed (see schedule below) will be taught in a step-work format that provides you with a ministry tool to utilize instead of just concepts to master.
  • You will gain a robust picture of what it means to apply the gospel to sin, suffering, and identity components of our emotional experience.
  • College students in secular schools will be able to receive elective credits for something that is intensely nourishing to their faith and practical for their lives.
