Taught by Dr. Del Tackett
This course is designed to broaden the student's foundational understanding of their presuppositions of the Christian worldview and apply this perspective when engaging the Church and Society. Students will be challenged to think critically about how they address contemporary issues, utilize Scripture when making wise decisions, and discern how a faith-filled calling witnesses to today's culture.
Taught by Dr. Robert and Elena Thomason
This course is designed to examine the spiritual and material identities of the Christian student, and equip them with practical skills that will immediately sharpen their leadership competence. Utilizing current research and biblical guidance, students will distinguish the importance of innovation, leading organizational change, character maintenance, personal strengths, personality preferences, and ethics. Application discussions will span from leadership in the workplace to leading at home.
The internship gives students professional experiences and opportunities tailored to their academic disciplines, skills and personal interests through placement at a local internship site. It provides relevant guidance concerning their calling and career choices. In addition, it gives them an opportunity to process and “work out” vocation related material from their FLI classroom courses.
