Event description

Description

John Calvin wrote that wisdom “consists almost entirely of two parts: the knowledge of God and of ourselves.” An introduction to spiritual formation can best begin by learning more about ourselves. In this module, we will take a look at our God-given talents, learned skills, spiritual gifts, and personalities, so that we can know how God has designed us to serve.

We will undertake three inventories in preparation for this module: a spiritual gift inventory, a ‘sacred pathways’ evaluation, and the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (R). When you register for this certificate program you will be contacted by the instructor with information about completing these inventories ahead of the class. Please note: to cover the cost of the inventories, there will be an additional charge of $25, instead of $125 for the module, it will be $150 for this first module.

Tyndale full-time student, staff and alumni can receive a 10% discount. You will need to email the Tyndale Spiritual Formation Centre at tsfc@tyndale.ca to receive a discount code before registering online.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Understand the various ways God equips us in life and ministry

  • Discover how gifting and personality preferences come together to make each one’s spiritual formation journey different

  • Appreciate that there are different ways that people connect most easily with God.
