The Church is God’s chosen instrument for accomplishing Missio Dei (God’s Mission). This course is designed to introduce an understanding of culture and theology of mission that informs our engagement with our own communities, with peoples around us who are not like us, and gives foundations for involvement in mission beyond our own borders. Processes and practices for engagement with our own communities, and beyond, are introduced and discussed.
There is a possibility that this course could be offered in a network setting. This would be helpful as a needed refresher for those who have already taken it as well as a way to help those who have trouble getting to regular course offerings (such as bi-vocational pastors with limited time). If you would like to discuss this possibility please contact Dan Sheffield or Jared Siebert.
There is also discussion about adapting this material for a one day seminar for local church leaders. Please stay tuned for more information on that.
