How do I demonstrate Competency 4? “Lay out a strategy for establishing everyone in a local church in both the gospel (kerygma) and the essential teaching of the apostles (the didache), as well as understand how the BILD curriculum grows out of the didache.”
- You may use any evidence you have to demonstrate this or any competency.
- You should have this competency in mind at all times as you move through the course. Unit 1 surfaces principles that need to undergird any strategy. Units 2 and 3 help you to understand the benefits and shortcomings of methods that the church has historically used to contend for the faith. Unit 4 draws you into examination of major contemporary issues that any strategy must deal with. Building on this, student usually draw on their work from Unit 5 to fully address the competency. Take care not to neglect the last portion of the competency related to understanding how the BILD curriculum grows out of the didache. The point here isn’t to elevate the BILD curriculum but rather for you to demonstrate the capacity to assess how well a curriculum delivers the didache.
