This two-week, collaborative, online course will give you an introduction to animism and folk religion so that you can better minister to those who follow these beliefs. In this course you will:
- Compare and contrast “folk” and “formal” religion;
- Analyze animistic elements in the folk religion of the people group with whom you serve; and
- Develop a preliminary strategy for addressing folk religion concerns from a biblical perspective that will minimize syncretism.
This course was created by Dr. Gary Ridley, who currently serves in the training department of SEND International. Dr. Ridley has a Master’s of Divinity and a Doctor of Missiology from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School.
