You were made for more. Use what’s in you to bless the world around you.

Perspectives is for believers from all walks of life. Hear how God has been and continues to work throughout the world. Learn more about God’s kingdom and His glory. Find out what your part is in this exciting movement.

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. We will be bringing in speakers each week to teach that particular topic.

The goal of the class is to give students a clearer understanding of God’s mission to bring the Gospel to all nations, and to provide students with resources to take their next step in this mission, whether to go overseas themselves or get involved in other ways within their local church. This class is for ANYONE! After going through the class there are lots of next steps – folks might feel called to: be a missionary, support a missionary, pray for the nations, get more involved in local missions. It stirs a longing to be part of God’s work in those who complete the course.
