Part of the mission board’s heart, here at CCC, is to educate and equip. Why missions? What about the unsaved people here? What is an unreached people group and why should we go to them? How do we do this strategically and effectively? We see in Revelation that ALL peoples from every tribe, tongue, and nation will be worshipping at the throne of God. His good will and plan include saving people from every tribe, tongue, and nation. What role is ours to play?
We have found the Persepctives class to be hugely instrumental in helping to educate and equip, and for that purpose we are offering scholarships for those who want to grow deeper in understanding God’s heart for missions! Perspectives is a class on world missions and will start this January at Cross City Church. It is a 15 week in depth class, with class being once a week. Class begins Tuesday January 8 6-9pm, and runs through May 14. There are different levels of participation ranging from key reading, certificate, or undergraduate or graduate credit -3 semester units. The first session is free and we would love to see some of you there ! If you have more questions or would like to ask about the scholarships we offer, please contact Bryan or Laura Unruh at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Below you’ll find a little more info on exactly what Perspectives is!
God has a "world-sized" role for every Christian in His global purpose.Whether people go to distant countries or stay at home is a secondary issue. The primary issue is what most people are hungry to discover: vision to live a life of purpose. Discovering that vision makes this course valuable, and perhaps crucial, for any Christian.
Perspectives is a fifteen week course designed around four vantage points or "perspectives" — Biblical, Historical, Cultural and Strategic. Each one highlights different aspects of God's global purpose.
The Biblical and Historical sections reveal why our confidence is based on the historic fact of God's relentless work from the dawn of history until this day.
The Cultural and Strategic sections underscore that we are in the midst of a costly, but very "do-able" task, confirming the Biblical and Historical hope.
