- Students have two calendar years (four consecutive fall/spring semesters) to complete the SF100 spiritual formation requirement. Students who register for SF100 need to keep in mind that the course is a four-semester-long course that will meet at the same day and time each of the four semesters. See the Spiritual Formation and Leadership department for more information.
Students completing this ministry concentration should be able to design, direct, supervise, and evaluate the overall educational ministry of a local church. The Educational Leadership concentration is the only CE concentration available in Houston. Other concentrations will be supported as resources and enrollment allow.
Students in the Houston Educational Leadership concentration may take CE105 Teaching Process and Audiovisual Presentations in place of CE103 Teaching Process and CE104 Audiovisual Presentations. In addition to the core Christian Education courses in the M.A./CE program, the Houston concentration also include CE401 Age-level Ministries, which is only offered at the Seminary's extension sites. Other electives in the Houston concentration will be selected with input from the students in the program.
