This course is for restless Christians who are called to transform the world but are struggling to implement and sustain their ideas. Using Biblical examples, you will learn creative communication and collaboration practices that focus on God’s help and vision. In Jesus we know there is no East and West, so we will look at applications of creativity that are not Eastern or Western but His.
Even if you are in what may seem to be an uncreative situation, you’ll call on your own creativity to develop and share effective innovations that help inspire others. Do you want to be creative or to be more creative for God? Let’s serve Him together in our call.
This course is worth 1.0 CEUs.
About the Instructor
Teryl Cartwright is a teacher and writer. She is excited to be a Culture of the Call Coordinator, teaching three very different “Helping Young People Hear God” modules for Churches, Camping, and Campus Ministries and the Mentoring Young People in Faith course, all part of the Timothy Circle initiative at the Institute for Discipleship.
She recently earned her Discipleship Coaching certificate and will start serving a term on the Susquehanna Conference’s Board of Ordained Ministry in June, 2020. She has an M.A. in Critical and Creative Thinking, and B.S. in Education. For ten years she worked as a freelance curriculum writer for Group Publishing and then served as Director of Adult Ministries in a thousand member church for seven years. She has taught various other online courses including “Conference Call,” a personalized “design as you go” curriculum offered by the Susquehanna Conference E& I Committee for those attending a “God’s Calling” workshop on discernment. She loves the “iron sharpening iron” opportunities to learn from her course participants.
She is a member of Spry Church (UMC) in York, PA. Her teaching is based on reflection, discussion, and activity-based learning. She feels blessed to have piloted several unique Bible studies within the local church on bioethics, humor, creativity, and service learning. Some of her hobbies include origami, game creation, pottery throwing (making bowls not breaking them), and Christian fiction writing. An advocate of lifelong learning, she thinks the best part is seeing the wonders God reveals daily!
