Perspectives Course Coming Back to Harrisonburg Early Next Year
Posted on August 5, 2022 by Jon Trotter
Faith Community Church will host the Perspectives on the World Christian Movement course this spring (held on Tuesday evenings, January 3 to May 2, 2023). VMMissions staff members are working together with volunteers and staff from a variety of local churches to bring the class to Harrisonburg, Virginia.
Perspectives on the World Christian Movement is a 15-week course, heartily endorsed by a broad spectrum of evangelical denominations, ministries, and mission agencies. Over the last 50 years, God has used the Perspectives course to inspire and inform mission vision within those denominations, ministries and agencies, helping God’s people find their place and calling within God’s heart and mission. The class provides an overview of the biblical mandate, a review of mission history, a window into cultural factors and an examination of mission strategies.
Students will participate in 15 discipleship-focused classes. They will have reading assignments drawn from a curated collection of articles from missiologists and practitioners. Class sessions will provide opportunity for in-person interaction with approved Perspectives instructors who offer insights drawn from their experience and expertise. Reflection assignments reviewed by mentors will help learnings to become personalized. Students can enroll at whatever level is appropriate: key reading, certificate, or for undergraduate or graduate level credit.
