MLV2300 Multihousing Ministry
Educational Level: Lower undergraduate, Associate
Credit Hours: 3 Credits
Instructor: Dr. Ronnie Cox
An into to the Biblical basis for ministry in multihousing settings, with emphasis on opportunities available, apartment industry systems, and the processes that create initial success in engaging the unreached (people group) within multihousing communities world-wide.
How This Course Benefits Students:
Create awareness of unreached groups who reside in apartment communities, manufactured housing, senior communities, and campus settings. Provide basic knowledge and skills for engaging apartment owners/management companies, site managers and staff, and residents. Serve as a Biblical foundation for making multihousing ministry a critical part of the overall evangelistic strategy in ministry settings; especially with regard to reaching cities and starting churches.
Why This Course Is Important:
All church planters will discover an entirely new population; 96% of which are not engaged in a local church. They may discover that this is perhaps the easiest way to begin the search for persons of peace and form the core group for a new church plant. Should they fail to understand the multihousing piece, in many cases they will eliminate over 40% of the population in their church planting target area. It is therefore relevant to their strategy to engage every pocket of people in order to effectively reach a community and start a new church.
