Upper Midwest School of Ministry
Church History: Through weekly readings, facilitated online discussions, partnered learning and independent inquiry, students will seek to better understand the church of today by learning of the church’s struggles, conflicts, debates and growth through the centuries.
While we are less likely to burn at the stake those with whom we disagree, it is surprising to discover how present and active are those ancient heresies, theological controversies and conflicts.
The course is divided into two semesters – one that traces our story from the Early Church through the Reformation; and the second, from the Reformation to the Present.
Instructor: Dr. Tim Diebel
Dates: Aug. 31-Nov. 16, Monday evenings at 7 p.m.
