Course Content & Goals

This course prepares students for success in ministry with Indigenous Peoples by contrasting recent and historical failed mission attempts with efforts that produced positive outcomes. Students examine various Indigenous ways of contextualizing the core tenets of Christian faith as well as the history leading up to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s calls to action. Students also explore ways to act on these calls within the context of ministry.

Prepared to Lead Well

The college’s mission is: Advancing God’s Kingdom by Preparing Competent Christian Leaders for Spirit-Empowered Life and Ministry. Competent leaders are those who constantly strive to learn more about Indigenous Peoples and who understand that advancing God’s kingdom does not mean advancing a moral foundation for western imperialism but rather advancing the progressive voices of justice, healing, hope, and radical change that come through sharing the love of Jesus. Informed, Spirit-empowered ministry is best done in partnership with Indigenous leaders and should take into consideration their current political, social, and economic situations and support Indigenous Peoples where possible.
