A concentration in missions includes courses in philosophy, practices, methods, the cults, deputation, and cultural anthropology. The men combine this with a strong Bible curriculum as well as courses in church planting, homiletics, and evangelism. The ladies in this concentration receive the mission training along with general courses in education, music, and secretarial skills. This page includes a prescribed sequence of course study for this concentration.

College Experience

Men and ladies training to serve Christ as missionaries hear instruction from veteran missionaries who have church-planting experience on foreign fields. Students develop a biblical understanding of world-wide missions and practical methods and insights about effective missions work. Students in the missions program are encouraged to visit foreign fields through organized missions trips.
