This course focuses on developing skills, tools, and theoretical/reflective capacity for community organizing around multiple issues within a ministry context, and is taught by a team of experienced trainers from IAF (the nation's oldest network of faith-based and community organizations) with additional theological reflection and context provided by a CDSP professor.  Format will include lectures, discussion, role-play, small group work, and reading.  For those taking the course for academic credit, additional reading and writing, including pre-reading and a pre-course paper as well as a final paper, will be required. The course is open to all members of the seminary community and will also include local non-credit participants from community organizing projects.
