The CTL supports PLNU's Strategic Goals through their second and third goal statements: “An intentionally Christian community” and “Faithfulness to our Nazarene heritage and a Wesleyan theological tradition.” These goals, primarily met by the Wesleyan Center, also align with some of CTL’s work. For example, the Wesleyan Center has facilitated several Faculty Learning Communities on Dr. Smith’s book, Teaching and Christian Practices. In addition, CTL has partnered with the Wesleyan Center to host panel presentations on faculty’s implementation of Christian Practice in the classroom. The CTL director also participates in the sessions of New Faculty Seminar dedicated to faith in the classroom and also Wesleyan Heritage.
The following link contains several examples from PLNU faculty who have implemented Christian Practices into their courses / classrooms.
Chart on Spiritual disciplines
The Chart on Spiritual Disciplines is taken from Spiritual Disciplines Handbook by Adele Calhoun. It offers faculty a guide to rhetoric that can be used in their Christian Practice course construction.
