'Faith Thinking' Short Courses

Required Element

Friday, 27 November 2015

Faith Thinking is a joint venture between the Department of Theology and Religion and a number of Dunedin churches, and supported by Otago Continuing Education.

The vision? To offer a range of courses that give in-depth teaching on various subjects, in order to help Christians love God with all of their minds. These subjects include New Testament, Old Testament, Systematic Theology, Practical Theology, and Church History.

Each course will be taught by someone with expertise in that subject area – either by a university lecturer (predominantly from the Department of Theology and Religion), or a church leader.

A number of courses will be offered throughout the year, and the venue for each course will either be a Dunedin church or the University of Otago.

Course Times: Each course consists of approximately 6 hours of teaching, either one weekday evening for three weeks, or a Friday evening and Saturday morning.
Course Cost: Each Course is $30 and must be paid in advance
