Perspectives and a network of our partnering organizations are
developing a follow-up to the Perspectives course to help our
alumni form the relationships that will help them explore taking
the next steps. Towards the end of class, we plan to send a
survey to the students to discern how God might be leading them
to join in His purpose. Students will receive recommendations for
opportunities with our partnering organizations, and more
importantly, be given the option to receive 90 days of coaching
from a mission mobilizer.
Through the coaching, students will be given the space to debrief
their learning experience, get connected with their local
communities and churches, and receive guidance on how they can
take the next steps to join God on his global mission.
In order to facilitate the survey and manage the process that
allows for individuals, coaches, organizations, and churches to
connect with one another we are developing software that will
help facilitate this process. The total cost of development for
this software is $150,000. God has already provided through
SouthEast Christian Church in Louisville, KY to provide a
matching gift of $75,000!
Perspectives is a fifteen week course designed around four vantage points or "perspectives" — Biblical, Historical, Cultural and Strategic. Each one highlights different aspects of God's global purpose. The Biblical and Historical sections reveal why our confidence is based on the historic fact of God's relentless work from the dawn of history until this day. The Cultural and Strategic sections underscore that we are in the midst of a costly, but very "do-able" task, confirming the Biblical and Historical hope.
Perspectives is an awe inspiring comprehensive course that has deeply impacted hundreds of thousands of students during the past 40 years. From Genesis to the prophets, Jesus Christ to the early church, and Constantine to today, you will see how God has been moving, how the global Church has responded, and what the greatest needs in world evangelization remain today. It isn’t a class about missions, but a course on how every believer can be intimately woven into the story of God using His people to be a blessing to all the peoples of the earth.
Experience God’s heart for all peoples and encounter the momentum of the world Christian movement.
