PAS 104 Gospel, Church, and Mission as Pastoral Calling

This course explores the evangelistic undertaking of pastoral ministry set within the backdrop of God’s worldwide mission. Rooting the discussion in a biblical-theological study of the book of Acts, this course will trace the global progress of the gospel from the nascent years of the early church, through the subsequent centuries of church history, and within the contemporary missiological scene. In particular, this course will help students set the pastoral vocation within a global and local context as they build a biblical theology of mission, fortify their understanding of the gospel, and come to terms with the centrality of the church in God’s cosmic purposes.
