Discernment: Theology and the Practice of Ministry
Published by the Siburt Institute, this peer-reviewed digital journal encourages effective ministerial practice by making practical theology accessible to the church. It does so through publishing essays that engage rigorous theoretical and theological reflection with contextually sensitive ministerial action. Discernment is available at no cost to readers worldwide.
The articles published in the journal present work describing ministry in a broad array of contexts such as: congregational life; a particular ministry within a congregation (for example, children’s ministry); mission contexts; ministry in cross-cultural settings; or Christian ministry in an extra-congregational environment (for example, disaster relief or care for the poor).
