Why This Course Is Important:

World Christians must understand their part in God’s story and identify ways to become part of God’s global mission. The course’s aim is not to persuade students to become missionaries. Neither is it to train in skills needed as a missionary. The point is to persuade students of the feasibility of joining God on mission and to set students on a path of ongoing learning so that they may wisely play their part in God’s global purpose.
