What Will I Study?

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

An analysis of the biblical culture that valued hospitality as a supreme virtue. It explores how hospitality shapes Christian’s identity as the recipient of God’s hospitality at the Lord’s Table, and would help develop a theology of hospitality and Christian presence to others in homes and in the household of faith, as a means of participating in the mission of God in an unhospitable world.

In this course, students practice making the Gospel translatable to the cultural context of their field of mission, they are equipped to employ a redemptive-historical hermeneutic for interpreting scripture and research six descriptive domains that encapsulate the cultural orientations of their mission field. As students acquire knowledge of missional practices, consult an expert practitioner and get involved in an on-site evaluation of a place where Gospel and missio Dei intersect, they accumulate vital resources for coherently contextualizing the Gospel in any mission field.

How is military life and culture changing? What are driving these changes? Students will explore readings from different timeperiods and perspectives, evaluate these trends, and propose how they may impact missional activities.

Many returning military members and veterans face cultural, psychological, spiritual, and ethical challenges adjusting back from deployments or to civilian life. Students are expected to assess and articulate problems faced by service personnel and veterans, obstacles and barriors to receiving care, and a description and evaluation of current care systems.

Which advocacy and outreach styles are most appropriate for different contexts? Students will evaluate apporaches and styles of outreach and create a template for analysis.

How can one sharpen leadership skills in assisting military families? This course will provide the opportunity for advanced student to assess a problem to be addressed, identify resources needed and identify the best organizations for the best network possible. Leadership styles and tasks will also be explored to determine the best way to motivate and organize teams and liaise effectively with organizations.
