Spiritual formation is both an opportunity and a challenge for educators in Christian colleges and seminaries. How can students be nurtured and guided in developing spiritually within the curriculum? Drawing on a number of educators, studies, and arguments, this article develops a rationale for engaging in spiritual formation and for the use of practical assignments or "soul projects." A selection of such projects is grouped into genres, followed by a brief exploration of best practices and an evaluation of such assignments.
Anointed teaching is based on a theologically grounded educational construct in which the anointing is not just an optional enrichment, but its defining mark. A literature review and scriptural framework are provided to encourage reflection in this neglected area of Christian Education. Anointed teaching is dependent upon the Holy Spirit's personal work in, upon, and among the participants and the entire educational process. The teacher's spiritual maturity is critical as theyinvite openness to the Holy Spirit and seek to cultivate the presence and power of His annointing. Practices, dispositions, outcomes that accompany anointed teaching are suggested.
