In this six-week course, learners will uncover what spiritual gifts can teach us, theologically, about God, others, and ourselves. Learners will examine varying beliefs about spiritual gifts and how they reflect and impact relationships with God and the world.
Expect to spend about an hour a day, Monday through Friday, earning contact hours by viewing video lectures, preparing weekly assignments, and posting to the Discussion Board. (Reading or viewing books, articles, or websites are not included in contact hours.)
In addition to Blackboard interactions, 1 optional Zoom meeting will be held each Thursday, at 8pm Eastern time. The meeting will not be recorded.
Learners are required to have this book for this class: Reorganized Religion: The Reshaping of the American Church and Why it Matters by Bob Smietana. Other readings will be provided.
This course is eligible for 3.0 CEU.

About the Instructor
The lead instructor for this IFDC program, Rev. Beth Perry, has a passion for Spiritual Gifts. She took her first spiritual gift inventory in the late 1980s. Around the turn of the century, she taught her first group of clergy about spiritual gifts and led her first congregations to explore their gifts. Since 2013, she has brought those decades of experience to almost 2000 participants as the instructor for Rediscovering Our Spiritual Gifts with BeADisciple.com.
