The Centre for the Development of Christian Ministry @ Trinity Theological College (TTC) which organises courses to equip Christians for lifelong learning, personal growth and ministry will be offering two evening courses from March to May 2015.
Course A: The Global Expansion of the Christian Faith
This course is a series of life stories that took place over a span of some 2000 years of human history. They are stories of women and men of the marginalised masses, misfits in society, religious hermits, the educated elite including a select few born of royal blood, affluent business entrepreneurs, adventurers and explorers. They were not experts in mass communication yet they were unstoppable peddlers and purveyors of the stories of Jesus in their time. Their stories of how telling the stories of Jesus, first in Jerusalem and then in Samaria and into the utter parts of the world, are good to hear today.

Course B: Understanding Christian Soul Care
Conversations on the subject of soul care have increased manifold in recent decades. Yet an understanding continues to elude the grasp of many Christians despite their acknowledgement that it is crucial to care for their souls. This course seeks to engender an understanding of Christian soul care. It will present a brief history of soul care, explain its theological bases and propose ways for the practice of soul care, especially in the context of a metropolis like Singapore.
