2 Course Introduction Counseling in the Local Church is a course that takes what you have been learning in other counseling courses and discusses how to practically apply this ministry. Most of you have already learned many things about how to understand people biblically and how the Gospel enables people to change (Dynamics of Biblical Change). Most of you have already learned many things about how the Gospel enables you to help another person change (Helping Relationships). (If you ve not had these courses yet, that s OK; this course is self-contained.) Now you will work out how to put this Gospel-driven model to use in the primary context in which God works change: your relationships within the body of Christ. Therefore, we will be addressing questions such as, Where are your opportunities to help others change? Where does counseling fit into your everyday life? Where does it fit into the local church? How will the model of change and influence shape a local church: its worship, preaching, evangelism, missions, offices, youth ministry, fellowship, children s programs, equipping, etc.? You might say that what we are doing in this class is developing a practical ecclesiology. Consider the following statements: You are a counselor/discipler, whether or not you think of yourself as one. You are a counselee/disciplee, whether or not you think of yourself as one. 99.9% of life-influencing counseling/discipleship does not take place in the professional counselor s office. Counseling/discipleship takes place in everyday life: every day, in every life. In fact, everyday life is counseling/discipleship. Your words ( lips, mouth, voice, answer, throat, and tongue ) influence others for good or ill. Your actions (model, example, and walk) influence others for good or ill. You are similarly influenced by others. Biblical counseling/discipleship is fundamentally church-based. If these statements are true, you face a series of questions. How are you a wise or a foolish counselor/discipler? Are you becoming wiser? Where are your opportunities to help others change into God s image? Who has God called you to help? How can you turn counseling/discipleship knowledge into counseling/discipling action? Counseling in the Local Church gives you the opportunity to answer these questions.

Community Board Discussion Groups (10%) The purpose of the Community Board discussion groups is to give you an opportunity to interpersonally interact with the conceptual, personal, relational/ministerial implications of the lecture/reading material for that week. It is the venue for you to discuss the class material with your fellow classmates. Therefore, your participation is required, and appreciated by your fellow students. a. Each week, the Community Board interaction question(s) will be posted in the section following that week s lecture. (Scroll down to the bottom of the page, below the video area, to see the question and area for response.) You will pick one question to answer, if there is more than one listed. You are required to post by midnight EST on the due date. b. Please try to keep your Uinitial postingu to that week s question(s) to between 250 and 300 words. This will encourage discussion, and ensure that all class members postings are read. c. Every member of the class is required to read and respond to Uat leastu 2 of the postings of the other students in your class offering. Please keep your responses to between 50 an 80 words (ie a significant paragraph). d. Your RI will be grading your initial posting for completion (worth 5% of your final course grade). At the end of the term, you will report on your level of engagement and how frequently you responded to other students posts (worth the second 5% of your final course grade). e. If you would like to post a question, comment, or lengthy reflection other than what is covered through the weekly interaction questions, feel free to start a new thread! f. All posts will be confidential and can only be accessed by the other students in your class offering (including auditors), your recitation instructor, and the CCEF Student 2013 Christian Counseling & Educational Foundation Page 5

6 Services department. Please do not share any of the information in the community groups with anyone else. g. Community Boards are graded based on your participation. The Community Boards are designed for you to learn in community as you walk through this class, learning from the gifts and experiences of your fellow students. Brief, thoughtful responses to the questions and responses to the comments of other students will stimulate your thinking about the various topics in the lectures and readings, and help you to benefit from the thinking of other students as you all interact with the material presented. 2. Reading Response Papers (20%) You are required to write a response paper for each of the required readings. Do not summarize, tell me something you learned that has changed how you think about your life within the body of Christ! For the JBC, read the entire issue and pick a chapter to write a response. All papers should be turned in Uby midnight ESTU on the date specified on the class learning path in. 2 pages 3. What is Your Calling? Paper (20%) What is Your Calling? was written by David Powlison to help students think wisely about their gifts and roles in the body of Christ. A detailed worksheet with questions and areas for consideration will be provided on to begin your reflection. Part of the assignment requires you to discuss your thoughts with at least two people who know you. Your goal is to get their feedback and enlist their prayers. If you are a pastor, discuss it with your wife, elders or deacons, a fellow pastor, or a wise friend. If you are a layperson, discuss it with your pastor or other leader, spouse, roommate, or ministry team partner. After reflecting upon this study and discussing it with others, summarize what you have learned. You will need to begin working on this paper and reflecting upon it at the UbeginningU of the semester, to be able to write a thoughtful reflection by the time the assignment is due. 3 to 3.5 pages 4.

Final Exam (25%) The final exam will consist of several short essay questions, providing the opportunity to reflect upon the various readings, class lectures and discussions. Once you begin the exam, you have two hours to complete the exam. 5 page limit Grading Rubrics For all class assignments, you will be graded on your ability to thoughtfully address and interact with the specific elements outlined for each assignment.

7 grading your various assignments. However, not every student will perfectly capture every element shown here! For example, a student who earns an A- or B+ instead of an A may have done excellent work, but failed to write clearly with good grammar, spelling and sentence structure. Or, perhaps the student had interesting discussion that demonstrated an understanding of the class content, but only made one application of one key concept in the class to the assignment, rather than several concepts. Reading Response Papers Reading response papers will be graded as follows: A B C D- F Student identified the main thrust/key points of the reading, with the ability to make strong personal and practical application of more than one key concept.
