It's A.D. 30 all over again. The church is having to play catch up to the Spirit entering the missional church. The emergence of the missional church is showing signs of being the largest realignment of Christianity since the
Reformation. This course explores the distinguishing contours of the missional church revolution as well as the leadership required by it. Major course attention will center on three primary shifts underway: the shift from an internal to an external focus, the shift from program-driven to people development as the core activity of the missional community, and the shift from church-based leadership to apostolic-era leadership.
What Others Have Thought:
course helped me to renew my commitment to becoming Christ's "sent one" into a lost world."
"Dr. McNeil is so enthusiastic and cares about this subject so much that it is contagious. He is a prophetic, challenging voice and his great sense of humor probably allows him to push people's thinking more."
students will do a written project which will allow them to summarize key insights from the course material and present a theological foundation for missional leadership.
