Class Description

The course will combine the assumptions of UM polity and the principles of connectionalism and itinerancy as to the nature of the church, membership, congregational life, ministry, chain of conferences, agencies, property, judicial administration and ecumenism as reflected in The Book of Discipline and The Book of Resolutions. The desired outcome is that these two books will become working handbooks for mission and ministry of UM students. This course, along with DS 660 and DS 665, fulfills some of the United Methodist denominational requirements for commissioning and ordination as deacon or elder. 2 credit hours. Offered annually. No prerequisite.
