The Centre for the Development of Christian Ministry @ Trinity Theological College (TTC) which organises courses to equip Christians for lifelong learning, personal growth and ministry will be offering two evening courses from March to May 2017.
Course 3 - Missio Dei – Historical and Holistic Perspectives
This course surveys the expansion and development of Christianity as Missio Dei (mission of God), from both historical and holistic perspectives. The salvation and renewal of all creation, the proclamation and practice of His word, and the growth and witness of the church are essentially understood as God’s mission. The first part of the course outlines the significant events/movements in transmission of the Christian faith. The latter half of the course sketches the significant themes of holistic mission, all of which are understood as God’s mission in bringing the whole Gospel to the whole world.
