Introduction to Global Missions
July 31-August 1, 2014

Jesus’ final words to his first-century disciples were “go, make disciples of all nations…” (Matthew 28.18-20).  Twenty-first century churches carry the same mission, sent as Jesus was sent to be a witness to the gospel among billions around the globe.  How, though, can a local church and individual believers fully embrace the Great Commission call to intercultural evangelism, discipleship, and church planting?  How can we do missions well?

Dr. David Sills and Dr. Jeff Walters, authors along with Zane Pratt of Introduction to Global Missions, will lead Alumni Academy participants in a study of the biblical, historical, and strategic foundations for missions through the local church.  We will consider how every church and believer can and should be involved in missions, providing practical tools and application of missiological principles including the missionary call, communicating the gospel interculturally, short-term missions, church planting, and more.

That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
