50 hours (5 weeks).
September 2021 - Present.
Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to: Acquire a broad vision of the history and development of the christian liturgy; understand various liturgical practices and compare them to the pentecostal liturgy; recognize and respect the different liturgical expressions within the christian and non-christian movement; develop and define a Latin Pentecostal liturgy; be sensitive to the Holy Spirit in the development of a public service and be critical of the elements to be used; make good use of visual elements that complement preaching, reading and music; think critically about the present and the future of our Latin Pentecostal liturgy; plan a public service that is fully aware of a strong Pentecostal liturgy.
Instruction is offered completely online or in synchronous format through the use of study guides, required and supplemental readings, quizzes, homework, lab-required interaction with the instructor, and/or final exams. The course assesses students’ end-of-course knowledge and skills in an online format. Major topics taught in this course include a liturgical practice with an emphasis on the Pentecostal tradition. We will explore the history, theology, and development of church liturgy and worship. Additionally, we will analyze biblical examples and how they have been transformed due to the different theological expressions, the context in which it is practiced, generational diversity and contemporary challenges. Finally, we will study and propose a Latin Pentecostal liturgy.
