It is to help UofN Bali staff and others who have a calling or interest in being part of Project 777 to go, at first short term, with a view towards pioneering a long term work among our target locations. The course runs on a part-time basis, meeting 3 times a week for 12 weeks. The majority of the learning is done through self-study of the resource materials provided, while the class time is used primarily to provide supplemental teaching or explanation of the content, as well as to facilitate discussion and application of the concepts learned. Throughout the lecture phase the students will be preparing a research project on their intended pioneering location, which will also help them define specific objectives for their subsequent scouting trip to that location. Our target is to see at least 70% of the students eventually pioneering in one of the Project 777 locations for at least 12 months.
