The course will examine the theological grounding of the polity of the Lutheran Church, exploring central teachings about the church historically , denominational identity and contemporary practices in the ELCA, especially as reflected in the constitution and other governing documents.

Opportunity will be given to focus a project on an aspect of the church's practices related to the student's interests , vocational intentions and preparation including emerging trends, ecumenical conversations and ethnic traditions and witness.
