TERM DATES: Mar 30, 2020 - Jun 12, 2020
3 CREDIT HOURS
This is an in-depth exploration of the nature of the Church, the Gospel and our participation in the all-encompassing mission of God in the world. The course introduces challenging readings, examines key biblical principles, and provides an overview of mission methods and strategies that illustrate mission in practice. You will be given an opportunity to articulate a biblical and missional mandate for a specific ministry context.
Our theology of mission must determine the mission models we choose and those which we avoid through establishing a biblical and theological foundation for the contemporary church and its mission. Scripture presents us with perspectives on the mission of the whole people of God, Kingdom growth, the role of the Spirit, culturally specific mission, and justice and mercy imperatives. Today’s challenges of global poverty, environmental destruction, the growth of non-Christian religions, and the rapid secularization of the post-Christian West help shape the missionary agenda of the church.
