The Centre for the Development of Christian Ministry @ Trinity Theological College (TTC) which organises courses to equip Christians for lifelong learning, personal growth and ministry will be offering two evening courses from January to March 2017.
Course 1 - Ecclesiastes: The Paradoxes of Life
The Book of ECCLESIASTES addresses the human quest for immortality and eternal significance through the things we do in life. It reflects to us the futility of many things we do and opens our eyes to see the many paradoxes in life – such as how tragedy can be more constructive than pleasure, or how endless pursuit of our personal goals leads to meaninglessness. Above all, it points us to the True Significance of human life and of what is truly and eternally worthwhile. It tells us that all that is lasting and meaningful is found in a life lived with GOD as our centre.

Course 2 - Church in Mission: Lessons from the Book of Acts
The Book of Acts records the miraculous birth and dynamic growth of the early church. We will study the Book as a whole but focus on a few key chapters in detail and extract principles that can be applied personally as well as in a church context. We will pay particular attention to the role of the Holy Spirit in empowering individuals and communities to fulfil Christ’s mission to make disciples of all nations. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss issues that may arise from their reading of the Book of Acts and formulate their own personal mission statement in the light of the great commission.
