This course seeks to introduce the student to missiological theory and practice. Missiology synthesizes theology, world and church history, cultural anthropology, and practical strategies based on the unchanging mandate of the Great Commission in a rapidly changing world. This course examines paradigm shifts and trends occurring in the modern missions movement, and addresses issues such as religious pluralism, changing missionary motivation, third world missions, missionary funding, contextualization, and other relevant issues.
