What Will I Study?

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

An investigation of the biblical theology of mission. The student will analyze three distinct but interrelated areas: The biblical and theological foundations of mission; the Kingdom of God as the theme of mission; and progressive revelation throughout salvation history. The student will be able to construct his/her own mission theological framework.

Students will assess different approaches to integrating spirituality with missionality in current and past literature. They will explore various forms of spiritual development and soul-care that encourage participants in both their spiritual depth and missional practice. Students will experience creative spiritual practices and develop customized spiritual development plans for their missional context.

Knowing your people is essential to the process of developing missional ministry. In this class you will develop a full ethnography incorporating both worldview and anthropological insights for the purpose of launching mission amongst unreached and least reached people groups in your community. Through dialogical questions with your target audience you will discern ways of sharing your faith at a personal level that engages worldview understanding.

When God started his narrative of redemption for humanity through Israel, he called Abram and his family and put them on mission together. The goal of this course is to provide the framework of how God is continuing to use the family as a primary community to embody his message and image to local neighborhoods.

So what is the essence of following Jesus into the world? Since Jesus has sent each of us to join in serving in the mission of God, how do each of us uniquely live that out, and how do we equip other believers to do the same? The course engages the topic around the biblical themes of redemption, reconciliation, restoration, and renewal. Students move beyond a one-sided, soul-centered gospel to living out faith in context -- growing as a culture maker in the image of Christ while being a disciple-maker. Mission-shaped disciplemaking embraces the new life for all creation that Jesus brings -- restoring the environment, renewing cultures and remaking peoples by offering healing and hope.
