iGroups are an integral part of the PLTS curriculum. These groups are composed of a professor and her/his advisees. They provide the opportunity and challenge for students to evaluate their work on the PLTS Dimensions of Excellence—Disciples of Jesus Christ, Lovers of God and of the people of God, Readers of issues, Tellers of the Christian story, Builders of community, Leaders in congregations, Missioners in the world, Learners for life. iGroups serve both as resource to students and as means by which their work is tracked and the means by which they are held accountable. In addition, iGroups can be places for:

  • Letting others know how you are doing (beyond a polite “fine”)
  • Praying and worshiping together
  • Supporting and encouraging one another
  • Challenging each other, when appropriate
