Missions: Cultural Intelligence & Global Communication

This elective course, the second of a rotating four-course set, is designed as a theoretical and practical introduction to the nature and implications of Christian mission, with particular emphasis on social justice and ecological responsibility. The purpose of these courses are 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 Christian mission. All students in this class will play a major role in the planning and organizing of Missions events and activities. The content for this course is on a four-year rotation, which will enable students to enroll multiple times while still learning new content and also gaining additional course credit.
