SCHOOL OF MISSIONS (CHR 235 / 236)

17 Sep 2018 - 1 Mar 2019

YWAM Harbour City (Hong Kong)

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. Topics include: biblical and historical foundations for missions; the nature of the Church; intercultural communication (principles of and skills for learning another language and culture); missions strategy (evangelism and church planting, church growth, intercession and spiritual warfare, healing, signs and wonders, 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). Our School of Missions will have a Frontiers Focus: focusing on unreached people groups among Muslims, Hindus, Tribals and Buddhists. The purpose is to train workers for living and ministering among unreached people groups with church planting as a key strategy in discipling new converts. We will also emphasise as much as possible other long-term mission arenas: Understanding the importance and application of Strategic Missions, understanding Pioneering Principles, Urban Ministry, and Ministry to the Islamic World. 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.
