Description


A seminar course in
which students do guided reading, discussion, and application

in areas related
to urban ministry with part of the time spent in class and the rest in

local urban
-
ministry
experiences.


Rationale


Over the past generation, many churches
and Christians
have fled from our nation’s cities and
focused their ministries upon suburban and rural populations.
As a result, the influence of the
Church has decreased tremendously to urbanites and
the
inner city poor
.
But this can be changed
if suburb and

rural chu
rches decide to make

serious commitment
s

to inner cit
y churches and
ministries

located
in the United States.


Objectives


1.

Observe and reflect on
urban
poverty and culture.

2.

Learn the variety of opportunities for urban ministry.

3.

Understand the need for
more urban ministry to occur
.

4.

R
eflect on
area
s

of urban ministry of personal interest.

Class partici
pation and attendance

25
%

of your grade
.

Attendance and
participation is critical

for an effective learning experience.

Students are expected to come
prepared for class, being present mentally as well as physically. Participation gra
de will be
lowered for
absences,

chronic lateness, and generally acting bored or disengaged.

(This does
not mean that introverted pe
ople have to talk a great deal;
or that extroverted people need to
talk more than they already do
!
)


Also, if there is a document that a guest speaker want
s read
before he/she lectures, this will be indicated as part of class participation. A signed note
saying you read the material will be enough indication.




The
Observation Papers are
worth
25
%

of your grade
. Each
observation paper should be
no longer
than
2

pages
, a
nd
should
be a reflection of your learning

from each speaker or
urban experience
.

Your
observation papers

should contain the following elements:


o

Indication of which speaker or experience is being reflected upon.

o

Reflect on specific
topics, ideas, or statements the speaker made. For an urban
experience, reflect on what you felt or thought about during that experience

(Be
Specific)
.

o

Explain how the
speakers and/or experiences
impacted your personal views and how
you will apply the
mes
sages or experience in

your
own
life and ministry.


*
Each observation paper must be typed
,
single
-
spaced with standard formatting,
Times

and spelling.


Completed

observation papers will be turned in at the
beginning of each class period (except for last day, which will be brought to Linda
Palmer’s office or emailed to professor by
noon on
Friday, May 16
th
.




The Book notes are worth
25%

of your grade.

Book notes are an alternative to book
reviews, but just as involved. The grade will be gauged on the quantity and quality of entries
.
As a rule of thumb, there should be
approximately half as many notes as the number of pages

3

read
. The form of the boo
k note is as follows

and must
remain
in this form

for the entire
assignment
:


Page #


Author’s comments (either summarized or partia
lly quoted by writing first and
last words of author’s comments)

.



Y
our comments about the author’s
comments. This could
be agreements or disagreements, similar experiences or
new
understandings
,
emotional reactions or rational reflections,
etc.
(Just make
sure it has some substance).




These book notes could be typed or hand written (but handwriting must be legible).

Please indicate which book or article is being noted.




The final
research
paper is worth
25%

of your grade
. The paper will focus on an issue
that significantly affects the urban world

(see below)
. The paper will be
8
-
10

pages in length
and will follow
standard grammar, syntax, style, and formatting rules promoted by CCU

in

Little, Brown Manual of Style.”

The
paper must be typed, double
-

formatting, Times New Roman 12 inch font, etc.



In addition, the paper will req
uire some resea
rch including but not limited to the use of books,
articles, videos, as well as
at least two
interviews with
people working in urban ministries

related to your topic
.

This research must be indicated in a bibliography

including at
least
seven resources
used
. Good research requires multiple perspectives
.


The paper will be graded on depth and insight of content, proper grammar and synt
a
x,
research ability
and
the
overall
a
ffect
of the material.



Topics include, but are not limited to
violence, economic

poverty, emotional poverty,
physical poverty,
child abuse/neglect, illiteracy, homelessness, education, gentrification,

housing,
urban renewal,
etc.

You may suggest another topic

if it is relevant and significant to
the urban

situation
.

In fact, a guest

speaker may emphasize a topic that is not included above
but is significant enough to research and write about.

Remember, however, that the topic
must be significant enough to write a 10
-
12 page paper.
