Course Start Date
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.
1) Describe how our God is a missionary God from Genesis 1:28, 12:1-4, Acts 3:13, 25, Acts 8, to Revelation 5:9, 7:9, and 14:6 and 22:2b. Use additional Bible references as gleaned from the John Stott article. Post about three pages single spaced (double spaced between paragraphs) to your discussion forum. (biblical)
2) Identify and explain how the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20), the Great Commandment (Luke 10:29-37) and the Great Committed Witness (Acts 1:8) work together in your personal and church life to give the gospel to every nation, tribe and language. Post about three pages single spaced (double spaced between paragraphs) to your discussion forum. (Individual)
3) Demonstrate three missional outreach examples (use Get Dirty evangelism lessons as examples) by practicing each in a real-life ministry setting. Write at least two paragraphs of reflection for each experience. (ministry)
