—Colossians 2:7Cultivate is a one–year (February 2015 thru January 2016), online spiritual life development course for soldiers and officers. If you are hungering for more of what the Lord has to do in you and through you, Cultivate will help you fulfill this desire.
The course, which includes a 4–day retreat in October for 20 students, is designed to facilitate the renewing of our minds (Romans 12:2), the work of the Holy Spirit (John 16), the role of spiritual disciplines (Romans 12:1), being part of community (1 Corinthians 12), and living out our faith for the sake of others (Matthew 28:18–20).
Course instructors include Colonel Janice A. Howard, assistant chief secretary and secretary for spiritual life development; Major Lauren H. Hodgson, assistant secretary for spiritual life development; and Major Young Sung Kim, territorial ambassador for holiness. Colonel Howard and Major Hodgson each have backgrounds in spiritual development and personal spiritual formation. Major Kim has taught two holiness modules.
