Abstract

Indonesia has a unique way of dealing with disasters and the stresses of life. It is because the Asian context is close to suffering, poverty, and colonialism. Therefore, the spirit and principle to provide opportunities for others to work according to their fields are highly respected. This freedom is a principle that must internalize in education, predominantly Christian education, which is indeed called upon to educate its students to achieve that goal. However, the pandemic has complicated that goal due to massively restricted activities. This study aims to explain the strategy of Christian religious education in Pendidikan Tinggi Teologi Agama Kristen (PTTAK) in internalizing the theology of survival during and post-pandemic. The research method used is a qualitative case study. The study results show that the latest VUCA model, namely Vision, Understanding Networking, Clarity, and Adaptability and Agility, can be internalized to survive and exist during the Covid-19 pandemic.
