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; Strategic: focuses on deploying pioneering teams as the basic vehicle for addressing strategic areas of need throughout the world. Strategic missions embraces both short-term and long-term strategies to accomplish all aspects of ministry, including the planting of both local churches and missions structures. Pioneering: focuses on equipping individuals and teams to pioneer new ministries in geograpical areas and societal spheres, and to help clarify callings, develop vision and learn how to implement a pioneer project. Urban: focuses on urban areas. Students study demographic and structural views of cities, cross-cultural strategies for cities, and types of evangelism which are effective in cities. 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.
