Course Descriptions: Global Missions Department

The Global Missions Department offers personal and professional preparation for intercultural ministry.  The goal of the curriculum is to equip the intercultural minister to meet the challenges of missions in the modern world. Studies within the department keep the student current with contemporary developments in the discipline of missiology.  Courses are practical in orientation and emphasize the Pentecostal contribution to Christian missions.  Interdisciplinary studies in the department include courses in the following fields: missions history and theology, cultural studies and religion, intercultural communication, and missions strategy.  An important component in the curriculum is a required practicum that provides the student an opportunity for intercultural ministry.
