School of Ministry – Summer 2018
**Please note: While it is our desire that every student feel welcome to grow and learn through this experience, we are requiring attendance and completion of assignments to remain in the course. Repetitively failing to attend or complete the assignment reduces the quality of our discussions and overall class experience. Please take this into consideration as you decide whether to participate. We hope you will!

A Note From Garrett Regarding This Class: I’ve often found myself questioning the use of reading fiction, especially when it comes to enriching my faith. Gilead changed my outlook. It’s a book that explores the deep, abiding questions of life and faith. It’s told by a 76 year old pastor who found a young wife in his old age and, having a child by her, he set out to tell his young boy about the life he lived. I’ve found the story and the ideas within it so compelling that I wanted to teach a class about it. I believe this class will be deeply rewarding and enjoyable; anyone who comes will be moved to enjoy God, appreciate the rhythms and mysteries of life, and understand others and themselves in a different and perhaps new way.
