What Will I Study?

We offer the most comprehensive approach to serving in the mission of God.

A survey of Missio Dei, the Mission of God, explores Salvation History through the redemptive vision of God. The student will learn how God is reconciling all of creation unto himself in the person and work of Jesus Christ. Students will also observe God at work through His people in mission.

This course explores the spiritual dimension of missional engagement in the post-Christendom world. Students will discover practical and creative ways of deepening their personal spirituality allowing more engagement with not-yet Christians and the development of authentic missional community. Resources will include readings, video interviews with practitioners, creative spiritual practices, real-life experimentation and weekly Q & A reports.

Exploration of an approach to worldview study and a dialogical method to sharing your faith at a personal level, beginning with a clear understanding of Christian mission. Considers how understanding another person’s worldview through asking excellent questions will lead to a variety of approaches to evangelism in the context of diverse 21st century cultures.

This course will focus on living as a disciple in every area of life. Missional is a ministry buzz word but few know how to live it. This course will give students a clear definition of missional, best practices to living a missional life, and a template to apply God’s Mission into any context in which the student lives.

The Church is lived out by ordinary people doing ordinary things in service to an extraordinary God. Designed to equip students to experience the practical and everyday practices of missional living, this course will equip students with best practices from a breath of missional leaders and communities globally and challenge them to begin to think critically about application to their context.

Examines the basic essentials and disciplines of transformational disciplemaking. Students will be exposed to the classic Great Commission scriptures for the purpose of developing a biblical base and strengthen their theological position toward making disciples, then design a personal plan of pursuing life utilizing a more effective disciplemaking strategy.
