WM 765 Missionary Development and Orientation 2 credits

This is an introductory course designed to give the student a clear understanding of Christian mission. This includes the theological, historical, and practical reason for mission. Several areas which are often misunderstood are dealt with, such as what are the present responsibilities of the missionaries, the relationships of the mission with the emerging indigenous church, missionary children, etc. The life and development of the missionary and his/her own spiritual survival and growth are important aspects to this course.
