A six-month distance-learning certificate course, Transformational Development (TransDev), is designed for leaders and field managers of faith-based organizations, to help them integrate their faith in doing culturally-sensitive development work. The course aims to deepen understanding of the theology and practice of Integral Mission, helping development practitioners in particular, and staff of faith-based organizations in general, to think biblically and apply Christian values in their workaday world.
The course is divided into two modules, namely:
Module 1: Biblical and Socio-Cultural Perspectives on Development
Module 2: Practical Approaches to Poverty Reduction and Social Change
Course Duration: This course is expected to run for six (6) months, with twenty four (24) weekly sessions of about 1 to 2 hours each week or a total of 36 hours, on set schedule, and with a two-week break in between modules.
Language of Instruction: English
