These online mini-courses are centered around key ministry challenges you face today.

With a commitment of four hours per week for just three weeks, each class is designed to fit alongside the many time demands and commitments that you already have.

Faithful Anti-Racism in a Time of Pandemic

In this course, you'll gain practical knowledge about racism and xenophobia in America today and critically discern its impact on COVID-19.

You'll explore the ways that theology and politics work to support or dismantle current racial disparities. You'll develop faithful anti-racist responses to our present moment and recognize patterns of racist practices, structures and ideologies.
