SOM - SCHOOL OF MISSIONS - FALL 2018 (CHR 235)

27 Sep 2018 - 29 Mar 2019

YWAM Orlando

Offered in: English

An overview of missions with some specific skill training is introduced during the initial three-month course and then developed further during the field assignment. This is cross-cultural training for the critical first two years of longer-term pioneer mission ministry. Topics include: biblical and historical foundations for missions; intercultural communication (principles of and skills for learning another language and culture); missions strategy (evangelism and church planting, intercession and spiritual warfare, relief and development); personal and team relationships (the worker's relationship with God, interpersonal relationships, leadership and authority, team building and team dynamics, developing and relating with a prayer/financial support team). The School of Missions (SOM) lecture phase and internship work together to strengthen you in five areas: language acquisition, culture acquisition, self-care, team skills, and long-term placement. As much as possible, modules are hands-on. Pioneering: focuses on equipping individuals and teams to pioneer new ministries in geographical areas and societal spheres, and to help clarify callings, develop vision and learn how to implement a pioneer project. Muslim: focuses on providing students with the knowledge and skills to minister effectively long-term in a Muslim nation. Students should be able to provide an effective, contextual witness to Muslims, having the skills to be a part of a team starting a new long-term ministry in a Muslim nation. Note: College of Christian Ministries degree students will not be awarded credit for this course until both the lecture and field assignment are satisfactorily completed.
