Teaching is the heart of the matter — a process of transforming students and professors into persons possessing knowledge, wisdom, critical reason, and moral judgment, all proved in the life of care for others. Using enthusiasm and humor, moving around, calling students by name, encouraging discussion, teaching compels students to engage in the classroom, department lounge, and my office. Teaching is forming relationships with students, as we discover new ways of life and being in the world.
The program culminates in a semester-long supervised internship in a youth ministry setting.
