DM888 Theological Ethics for Ministry | Knox Theological Seminary

This doctoral-level class combines a theological and philosophical study of ethical theory with the practical demands of ethical ministry work. By means of a survey of approaches to ethics, secular and theological, the class will approach ethical problems to examine them in the complexities of practical application. Students should expect to be equipped for the usual and expected ethical issues in practical ministry with congregants, with the means to approach the unusual and unexpected when they arise. Furthermore, students will be challenged to consider organizational structures to both define and provide accountability to appropriate ethical standards for themselves personally as ministry leaders and to the ministries to which they are called.
