Missions & Evangelism Elective

Missions Track Description:

All scripture from Genesis to Revelation displays the heart of the Father’s desire for His children. The great grace of missions is to participate in the gospel in order to fulfill the Father’s longing that none would perish but for all to come to repentance. Today we face this reality where if our Lord Jesus Christ were to return today we would see over five billion people perish in a Lake of Fire. The Father has sobriety and understanding of this, and so too should our hearts be struck with sobriety and intercession for the lost.

To that end, this missions track will equip you in the following ways as you follow the call of the gospel to the nations of the earth.

  • The theology and apostolic witness concerning missions
  • Understanding the global missions movement and what’s happening in the “missions world”
  • Cultivating a heart that is willing to “GO”
  • Understanding strongholds of Islam and other religious and ideological strongholds in the context of our ministry trip
  • Training and practice in Partnership Development
  • Training in language acquisition and cultural sensitivity

In July 2017, missions interns will depart on a two week missions trip to a nation in the Balkan region.

Day and Time: Wednesdays 6:30-8:30 PM

Accepting: 5-10 interns
