Course Overview

Credit Hours: 3 Credits
Instructor: Dr. Terry Coy

Course Description:

A survey of Missio Dei, the Mission of God, explores Salvation History through the redemptive vision of God. The student will learn how God is reconciling all of creation unto himself in the person and work of Jesus Christ. Students will also observe God at work through His people in mission.

How This Course Benefits Students:

Mission must be driven by a theology that is biblically centered, but without ignoring historical and contextual issues. This course will lead the student to thoughtfully analyze the basis and the context for Biblical mission in the contemporary setting. The student will be able to develop and apply a theology of mission to whatever context she finds herself. Because the course deals with the foundational basis for mission, it will benefit the student in a variety of career or volunteer paths such as theological education, missional and missiological training, and sociological, pastoral, and anthropological studies.

Why This Course Is Important:

The Church of Christ must draw its biblical and theological foundations for mission from the Scriptures in order to be a transformational mission to the world. The missional task call for a biblical and theological reflection that will lead to a missional praxis that is consistent with the Evangelical Faith.
