Aim of the Program
This program aims to equip participants with the tools and knowledge to balance their faith, work, and family. Courses will enable students to read the Bible with a “marketplace” perspective and help integrate their faith into all areas of life, including professional growth and development.
This program enables Christian workers to biblically understand how their work and workplace are an integral part of the ministry (vocation) that God entrusted to them, and how they can contribute towards a change in the culture and values, relationships and the overall transformation of the workplace.
The “Christianity, Work and Society” study program is offered through a partnership between the Latvian Biblical Centre and the London Institute of Contemporary Christianity.
The academic schedule is structured to be manageable and inclusive for all students – single, married, with children, working, attending other schools or educational institutions, those participating in church ministry.
According to the study schedule lectures will take place approximately once a month. You can view the academic schedule here.
After each seminar, the participants will meet up monthly in study groups to cover the learning material together using e-Learning system and the course handbook. In order to complete this program students should attend scheduled classes, study groups and at the end of the course they will need to write a reflection paper.
All courses are recorded so that those who cannot join the course in person or online can watch it, and it’s a great option for watching the course again. After completing all the courses, students will present their final work with a presentation as a final exam.
