COURSE DESCRIPTION, LEARNING OUTCOMES, METHODS OF INSTRUCTION, & COURSE MAP

 

Course Description

Demons are terrified of Jesus. You carry the authority of Jesus. Jesus Himself says in Luke 10:19, “Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” Mark 16:17-18 tells us, “And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.” So why do we live beneath our privilege? Why do we only partially utilize the power we’ve been given? Furthermore, why is it sometimes difficult to cast out unclean spirits? The ministry of deliverance is the inheritance of all God’s people and it will become one of your greatest joys to see others set free. This eight-week course invites us to explore the theological foundation for deliverance and access the practical tools necessary to minister deliverance to ourselves and to others with repeatable success. 

Course Learning Outcomes

Students who successfully complete this course will be able to:

  1. Identify a biblical understanding of deliverance.
  2. Take ownership over their God-given spiritual authority.
  3. Equip themselves with the necessary spiritual tools that will allow them to become effective deliverance ministers.
  4. Confidently encounter all forms of demonic manifestations and cast them out in Jesus’ name!
  5. Support their current church/spiritual network in establishing a biblically-sound and sustainable element of the deliverance ministry.
  6. Design a template for deliverance that incorporates many of the principles that are taught throughout this course which will include the fundamental elements of the process of deliverance that will lead someone who desires complete deliverance to become free! 

Methods of Instruction

This course incorporates didactic instruction (e.g., lectures via written, audio, & video), group learning (e.g., small group discussions, group projects), and experiential learning (end-of-semester project).

COURSE REQUIREMENTS

Assignment Descriptions

 

Attendance, Participation, and Professionalism Students are expected to come to each class meeting. Missing a class means you will miss important content and experiences. If there is an emergency or you will be late, please contact the instructor as soon as possible. During each class, we will engage in some activity that will be required to submit before leaving class. These assignments will be challenging to make up outside of class, so if the absence is excused, the student can make up the assignment in office hours. 
End-of-Semester Project Planner Beginning Week 02, at the end of each class, we will spend time reflecting on how we can use what we have learned to construct our final project. We will use our Project Planner to support this effort.

    • Be rooted in scripture.

Online Etiquette:

These guidelines are adapted from the Touro College Online Education Blog

  • Before posting your question to a discussion board, check if anyone has asked it already and received a reply.
  • Stay on topic. Don’t post irrelevant links, comments, thoughts or pictures.
  • Don’t type in ALL CAPS! If you do it will look like you are screaming.
  • Don’t write anything that sounds angry or sarcastic even as a joke, because without hearing your tone of voice, your peers might not realize you’re joking.
  • Always remember to say “please” and “thank you” when soliciting help from your classmates.
  • Respect the opinion of your classmates. If you feel the need to disagree, do so respectfully and acknowledge the valid points in your classmate’s argument. If you reply to a question from a classmate, make sure your answer is accurate!
  • If you ask questions, many people may respond. Summarize all answers and post that summary to benefit your whole class.
  • Be brief. If you write a long dissertation in response to a simple question, it’s unlikely that anyone will spend the time to read through it all.
  • Don’t badmouth others or call them stupid. You may disagree with their ideas but don’t mock the person.
  • If you refer to something your classmate said earlier in the discussion, quote just a few key lines from their post so that others won’t have to go back and figure out which post you’re referring to.
  • Before asking a question, check the class FAQs or search the Internet to see if the answer is obvious or easy to find.
  • Check the most recent comments before you reply to an older comment.
  • Be forgiving. If your classmate makes a mistake, don’t badger him or her for it. Just let it go.
  • Run a spelling and grammar check before posting anything to the discussion board.
