Approaching Cross-Cultural Missions
In Matthew 28, Jesus commands His disciples to go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them and teaching them to observe what He had taught them. As Christians, we are part of this great commission and should all be involved in the spreading of the gospel throughout the world. Whether we send and support missionaries or go to the mission field, it is vital to understand what it truly means to fulfill the great commission.
In this course, students will learn what being a missionary means and how to approach life and work as a missionary in another country and cultural context. They will observe the early Church in the New Testament, what Scripture says is necessary for evangelism, and the example of missionaries in Scripture, like Paul. We will also discuss different strategic methods for building the Church and equipping the Saints throughout the world. Cultures and practices around the world differ, and there is freedom and beauty in churches around the world each worshipping a little differently. Students will grow in understanding where there is freedom for differences in worship according to different contexts and navigating an unfamiliar culture with the treasure of the gospel.
Excerpts from different books will be provided by the instructor

Every Morning with Jesus: Life Lessons for God’s Woman
June 22 to July 27
This six week summer class will focus on some of the most significant life lessons for those who desire to grow in their relationship with the Lord. This class is also open to moms and will be an opportunity for moms and daughters to grow in their relationship with the LORD as well as in their relationship with each other. If desired, we will be sure to have "just student and teacher" time too.
These lessons are the foundation of a life of godliness and joy. They are called life lessons because no matter what our age, season of life, or where we are in our journey, we need to be encouraged to pursue these qualities. The "homework" is more devotional in nature and designed to cultivate a life-long desire to spend time alone with Jesus.
• Week 1: Focusing on That Which Matters Most
• Week 2: Satisfied with His Love
• Week 3: Becoming a Woman of Faith
• Week 4: Treasuring God’s Word
• Week 5: Cultivating a Thankful Heart
• Week 6: Finding Peace in Life’s Chaos
At the end of the six weeks, you will also be given three more lessons to complete on your own: Finding Joy in the Lord, Becoming a Life-giving Woman, and The Beauty of a Surrendered Life.
Cost of the class: $80 (moms are free)
Course materials: $25 per book — Every Morning with Jesus: Life Lessons for God’s Woman by Doreen Moore
