The School of International Relations & Diplomacy (SIRD) is designed to challenge students to develop a biblical perspective and worldview in the area of government, international relations, and diplomacy. It will equip students to engage on a deeper level in the sphere of government, while creating a strong academic and spiritual foundation on which they are able to build right thinking as they serve, wrestle, and engage in this sphere. In addition, it will equip students with greater understanding of international current events within a historical context. Students will learn about regional issues and conflicts from highly respected speakers who are either nationals or have lived and worked extensively in the regions of the world they teach about. The students will learn to become facilitators of peace, justice, and reconciliation in the domains of international relations and diplomacy.
