Because Christianity is by nature a missional faith, every Christian is called to participate in God’s mission in the world.

Instructed by Rev. Murray Cornelius, the “Introduction to Christian Mission” course explores the biblical and theological basis for mission, the missionary movements in history, issues in communicating the gospel with cultural relevance, and various missional strategies and mission models. Students will be equipped to bring the knowledge of the gospel of Jesus Christ to their communities and beyond.

Finally, students will gain insight into identifying, integrating, and fulfilling their personal role in the Mission of God.
