“You have an epic role to play. Get threaded into the biggest story of all time. You’re about to experience God’s heart for all peoples and encounter the momentum of the World Christian Movement. Perspectives will open the eyes of your heart with fresh knowledge and understanding of God’s unchanging purposes and why they’re relevant to your life.”
Perspectives on the World Christian Movement is a fifteen-week course designed around four vantage points or “perspectives” that highlight different aspects of God’s global purpose. The Biblical and Historical sections reveal why our confidence is based on the historic fact of God’s relentless work from the dawn of history until this day. The Cultural and Strategic sections underscore that we are in the midst of a costly, but very “do-able” task, confirming the Biblical and Historical hope. Each session is taught by a different expert who specializes in the topic they cover so students gain even more wisdom and insight.
Who should go: The short answer is anyone who wants a closer walk with God and a deeper understanding of His ultimate purpose in the world. If you want to be a part of God’s plan for Him to be loved by every people on Earth, this course is for you.
