DSP3120 Life and Work of the Missional Interpreter

Course Overview

Educational Level: Upper undergraduate, Bachelor
Credit Hours: 3 Credits
Instructor: Dr. Thomas Law

Course Description:

Exploration of missional life patterns. The student will develop a plan for incorporating interpreting and/or translating into the normal rhythms of everyday life and work. Through readings, interviews, and case studies, the student will discover personal applications for utilizing interpreting and/or translating in life experience

How This Course Benefits Students:

One of the most difficult things for most Christ followers is joining their spiritual nature with the routines of life. Our work and life environments have been conditioned to separate the spiritual from the everyday. This course will help the student understand how their spiritual self is part of their normal rhythms and how to express that reality in the habitual routines that pepper their life and work.

Why This Course Is Important:

The expression of our spiritual nature is often relegated to one very narrow aspect: church. Being missional is not something we do; it is who we are. Expressing that as an interpreter is essential. It will enable students to not only be a successful interpreter/translator, but also a successful disciple of Christ.
