Missions Class

The Missions Program helps students understand and live out the Gospel each and every day in whatever situation they find themselves. It helps students move from head knowledge to heart knowledge to action. 

- Todd Moritz, Former CEO
As a Theology elective course, the Missions Class is in addition to (not a substitute for) the required Theology 1-4 courses and is on a four-year course curriculum rotation. This enables students to enroll multiple times while learning new content each year and also gaining additional course credit. The course topics are:

  • Social Justice and Ecological Responsibility
  • Cultural Intelligence and Global Communication
  • Poverty Alleviation and Community Development
  • Vocational Integration
The purpose of these courses is to explore the mission mandate of Jesus Christ and how Christians are implementing it today, as well as to equip students to actively and joyfully participate in the Christian mission.

Each Missions Class session falls into one of four categories, which are explained below.

List of 4 items.

  • Study Days

    19-20 Course Topic: Social Justice and Ecological Responsibility (1 unit, grades 9-12)
