Missional Ministry @ Missional University
Our missional mandate has not changed, we bear the image of God and are his agents of reconciliation. The God of mission has not changed, he has on his heart the renewal of all things. In this time of disorienting and sometimes destabilizing transition, as the body of Christ, we require ways of thinking and acting that deeply connect us to our identity as residents of this earth who are citizens of heaven.
It is a great joy and deep passion of the School of Missional Practice to provide learning environs that function as transformational journeys for the people of God towards the missional thinking and practices that reflect our true identity. In every academic term of learning, we invite our students into a community of practice that is as ancient as our parents in the original garden and as contemporary as the globalized diversity in our chatrooms.

Creation Care @ Missional University
The faculty of the School of Ecological Mission are committed to the concept that God is at work not only in the lives and affairs of people across the globe but he is also at work in environments and how peoples are impacted by their natural, social and built environments. Just as sin has corrupted the image of God within persons (Romans 1:18-32), so too sin corrupts social and environmental relationships. In fact, the Apostle Paul writes that "We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time" (Romans 8:22-24). Thus God is about his mission of reconciling people and the entire earth unto himself. Faculty with expertise in a wide range of disciplines work together to equip missional Christians to participate in the mission of God through global health, environmental mission, humanitarian aid, geospatial studies and sustainable communities.

Theology & Mission @ Missional University
At Missional University we believe that a Biblical theology of mission is more than a core course. It is foundational to the University’s purpose and curriculum. Compelled by that foundation, the School of Theological Studies is committed to sound teaching in Scripture and doctrine, always in light of God’s missional purpose. As a student in the School of Theological Studies, you will learn how to read the entire Bible missionally - from the heart of a missional God who invites us to participate in his redemptive mission and who sends us as a source of blessing to all peoples of the world. Furthermore, as a student, you will be taught, challenged, and equipped with a missional view of Scripture, history, theology, and ethics, all with a view of deepening your character and growing your mission.
