Acts of the Apostles:

Christian Mission

Program Information

Class Description:

Paul the Apostle is remembered as the greatest missionary of the Christian tradition. The Book of Acts presents the biographical and missional framework for understanding the Pauline Epistles. We will come to understand not only Paul’s missionary strategy but also the foundational principles of Christian mission today as we work our way through the missionary journeys of Paul. Following this course, the students will know the context for each of the Pauline Epistles and also be equipped to evaluate effective Christian mission.
