SPT2700 Sport Ministry for Everyday Life

Course Overview

Educational Level: Lower undergraduate, Associate
Credit Hours: 3 Credits
Instructor:  Staff

Course Description:

How do Christ-followers who enjoy sport and recreation, engage their hobby (perhaps profession) which has been highly secularized and may not support the biblical principles and convictions that they embrace? This course will identify the areas of conflict and the opportunities to live missionally in the world of sport and recreation.

How This Course Benefits Students:

Students will learn how a biblical worldview should shape their involvement in sport and recreation. They will examine trends within these fields and identify areas of conflict as well as areas of opportunity. The result will be more satisfaction in their sport and recreation activities through missional participation.

Why This Course Is Important:

The responsibility of each believer to live missionally in all areas of life necessitates that those involved in sport and recreation, at whatever level, must think and act intentionally to demonstrate and communicate the Gospel.
