Contemporary Issues and Opportunities in Global Mission

This course surveys contemporary issues and opportunities in global mission, informed by the dramatic expansion of Christianity in Africa, Asia, and Latin America even as it wanes in Europe and North America. Topics could include short-term missions, immigration and international students, persecution and peace-making, Pentecostalism and the prosperity gospel, Scripture-use across cultures, cross-cultural partnerships and reciprocity, Business-as-Mission, unreached and unengaged peoples, and missionary member-care.
