Course Description

This course examines the principles and practice of those in the church expanding influence to neighborhoods, communities and worldwide. Students will be challenged to first minister locally then regionally and then throughout the world. Specific implications and applications are made to practical real-life by developing a strategy for immediately embracing Christian concern for our neighbors and the nations.
