Summer Masters Intensives

6/1/15 through 6/5/15

8 am - 12 noon (2 credit hours)

TSE 340 Seminar: John Wesley's Theology for Today's World (Haynes) This seminar will explore the various ways in which the theology of John Wesley can speak to social and spiritual issues facing the modern Church and world. While an excellent class for all students wanting to learn more about Methodist theology, this class will not fulfill the United Methodist ordination requirements.

Rev. Dr. Don Haynes is in his 60th year since being ordained Deacon and becoming a “Probationer” in the Western North Carolina Conference of the UMC. He has served as an adjunct faculty member at Hood since 1999, primarily teaching in the area of Wesleyan Studies. He has visited the Wesley sites in England seven times and done a summer school at Oxford under Ted Runyan, author of New Creation, the primary textbook being used in the course. Dr. Haynes published a book in 2009, On the Threshold of Grace—Methodist Fundamentals. He is currently completing a book manuscript on Reading the Bible and Seeing it for the First Time.

1pm-5pm (2 credit hours)

CHT 215 Black Women in Ministry (Godette)
This course explores the role of black women in ministry in the Christian Church. This class will be both historical and contemporary in focus. In addition to studying important personalities, attention will be given to analyzing institutional structures, theological concerns, and sociopolitical issues relevant to women engaged in ministry in the Black Church. (The Rev. Laticia Hill Godette is an ordained Elder; serves as the Pastor of Hyman Chapel A.M.E. Zion Church in Havelock, NC; and works as the Regional Director of a mental health agency. She earned a Bachelor of Science in Public Health from the University of North Carolina at Chapel in 2001 and graduated with distinction; she earned a Juris Doctorate from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Law in 2004; and in May 2014 she earned a Master of Divinity from Hood Theological Seminary and graduated summa cum laude.)

BST 115 Lexical Greek (Bellemer)

PTH 345 Theories of Counseling and Pastoral Care (Walden)

BST 322 Seminar: The Three Faces of Paul (Porter)
Paul had a mixed reputation: radical, conservative and reactionary. He seems to inspire grace and endorse systems of oppression. The class will 1) examine biblical and historical scholarship to address Pauline theology; 2) scrutinize the diverse understandings of Paul's importance, message and character; 3) contrast Paul's Jewish covenantal tradition to Roman imperial domination; and 4) discover how to use Paul in Christian ministry.
