Churches across Canada recognize that mission is central to their response to the good news of Jesus Christ. But just what mission means and what it looks like is not always clear. This course looks at the historical and theological roots of mission, while also introducing students to a variety of approaches to congregational mission, including community analysis, new monasticism, new church development, Eucharistic missiology, and much else. Students will leave with a renewed understanding of the meaning and significance of mission and practical ideas for thinking about mission in their own ministry contexts.
