Create a culture that engages issues in your community

Increasing numbers of lay people are considering or already involved in career paths that lead them into areas of intentional cultural engagement including public policy, education, sociology, law, business, urban studies, church mission, and working with advocacy groups. Ephesiology’s Faith and Culture Certificate is a course of study that provides the foundations and flexibility to meet these lay people’s needs. The certificate equips students to trace the contours of contemporary culture, interpret its movements and messages, and engage its challenges from a biblically informed worldview.

  • Utilize analytical tools to define, study, interpret and engage contemporary culture.

  • Understand how issues pertaining to culture, faith, and ethics impact worldview.

  • Identify the challenges posed by contemporary culture to Christian belief and practice.
