Class Description

This course will explore the nature and mission of the church in the contemporary world. Attention will be given to theological and ethical understandings of the relationship between the church and culture. The mission of the church will be looked at through the four different roles of the church in relation to society: Prophet, Community, Servant, and Witness. Students will be encouraged to construct their own understanding of the nature and mission of the church, which could be translated into a missional ecclesiology appropriate to their own ministry contexts. This course will combine lectures, class discussion and a site visit. Prerequisites: None, but CT549 or CE501 are recommended. 3 credit hours.
