Objectives of the Antioch Center for the Study of World Religions and Issues:
College of Missions
The North Central University College of Missions prepares students to love both God and others, extending God's Kingdom incarnationally across ethnic, racial, economic, gender, and generational barriers by focusing on unreached peoples and the oppressed and impoverished urban and rural poor. College of Missions students gain self-understanding, global awareness, missional passion & strategy, effective research, communication and teaching skills through integration of theory and practice learning as they serve in local and international ethnic communities.
Class of 2011
I think the College of Missions will provide a great opportunity for students to get connected with one another and with the issues going on around the world. This will be a great place for any student to hear from the Lord on how he or she can make an impact globally.
The College of Missions offers one major: Intercultural Studies and Languages (ICS). Contained within this major are nine tracks:
- Biblical Languages
- Business as Mission
- Children and Youth in Crisis
- International Development
- Islamic Studies
- Missions and Family Studies
- Modern Languages
- Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL)
- and World Missions.
These programs of study engage students in one or more of the four Assemblies of God World Missions ministry strategies: reach, train, plant, touch.
Specialized ICS minors allow students to gain in-depth international experience as they study off campus for one semester:
- Asian Studies (18 cr.)
- Modern European Studies (18 cr.)
- Islamic Studies (18 cr.)
- Latin American Studies (18 cr.)
- International Development (19 cr.)
- and Spanish (20 cr.).
College of Missions alumni work in a wide range of careers: international & U.S. missions, international education, the local church, urban ministries, not-for-profit organizations, child welfare ministries, and international relief development. Graduate study for College of Missions alumni has successfully included: intercultural studies, TEFL, theology, linguistics, social work, organizational leadership, education, public health, marriage and family counseling and individual counseling.
