Theology and Community Violence is an awareness course that focuses on various aspects of violence in the community. Ultimately violence leads to a revolving door in the Criminal Justice system. Community Violence does not always result in incarceration but can have serious consequences for families and the community. Community Violence is a spiritual problem and how it is dealt with in society shapes our theology. DBTI believes that it is time to take a proactive approach from a disciple-making position. The course includes orientation to the correctional institution setting, building relationships, and applying biblical principles. Finally, another major emphasis of this course will be on developing prevention strategies for families and ministries for the local church to implement to minimize unnecessary violence in our communities.
