Missio Dei: The Mission of God in the World
Starting with Abraham and continuing through the Prophets, Apostles and the Church the mission of God is to reconcile to Himself all things in Heaven and on Earth through Christ. The congregation is intended to serve as the local mission outpost of the Kingdom of God where this reconciliation is cultivated and advanced. Rather than seeing mission solely as a foreign endeavor, in the global age missiological understanding has come to emphasize mission from everywhere to everywhere. In this course we will look at issues related to equipping, preparing and sending short and long term missionaries as well as how the same principles are to be applied in local mission at home. Often small and medium size parishes overlook the potential for what God might do in their midst and in the world because they see the task of global mission as too great for them.
Professor: Fr. Jack Gabig
This 1 week course/conference and cross cultural mission experience is offered by Nashotah House Seminary in cooperation with St. Augustine’s Anglican Seminary, Lima, Peru. It will lay a theological and practical foundation to help Church leaders grasp their role in developing, sending and supporting missionaries at home and abroad. Five evening lectures offered in English and Spanish will consider a variety of missiological perspectives in biblical, historical, systematic, cultural and practical theologies. Mornings and afternoons will be spent in ministry shared with Anglican missionaries and local Peruvian clergy and seminarians.
