About this course: UCC History and Polity (IP 581) is a four-week asynchronous online course designed to equip lay and ordained leaders for service in ministry settings of the United Church of Christ. It will also fulfill a requirement of UCC Committees on Ministry for authorization as ordained, licensed or commissioned ministers in the United Church of Christ, Indiana-Kentucky Conference. It is based on the Marks of Faithful and Effective Authorized Ministers (The Marks). Through readings, videos, multi-media presentations, discussion forums, and a writing project, students will engage in community dialogue and written reflection to understand the history and polity of the UCC. Each lesson contains a string of activities designed to enhance the student’s learning experience, including viewing online presentations, reading assignments, engaging in online discussions, and writing a weekly reflection.
