Missions and Evangelism
of our Missions and Evangelism concentration is to equip our students to effectively share the Gospel of the Kingdom and disciple the nations.
The most powerful witness
is that which flows out of our personal, intimate relationship with the Lord.
When we take our place
on the witness stand of life and honestly tell what we have seen and heard in the Presence of our Father, our lives and our words have the power to influence the destinies of prisoners of sin and despair.
The Missions and Evangelism concentration
will help you develop a greater awareness of your spirit and the Holy Spirit Who lives within you so that all that you say and do is only in response to His promptings. You will explore the strategic tools of intercession and spiritual warfare in advancing the Kingdom, and become skillful in their use.
Because it is the anointing
that breaks every yoke, you will search out ways to increase the anointing on your life, your words and your works. Tools for personal evangelism will be examined and practiced, increasing your effectiveness.
If you are called
to a share the Gospel cross-culturally, you will be guided into independent studies that will equip you with greater knowledge and understanding of the harvest field into which you will go.
We are all expected to 'give an account of the hope that is within us' and the Missions and Evangelism concentration can enhance your preparation and confidence to step forward whenever you are called.

LEA103 Gifted to Succeed (Course Syllabus) 3 credits
“To each of us grace has been given according to the measure of Christ’s gift…And He gave some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers for the equipping of the saints.” Do you know which of these heart motivations God has given to you? Is God asking you to express this heart motivation within or outside the structured church, or both? Which ministry or vocation is He asking you to express yourself through? What kinds of people do you need next to you to make you most effective? These questions and many others will be answered.
REN206 Increasing the Anointing (Course Syllabus) 3 credits
The key to the successful Christian life is walking and living in the anointing of the Holy Spirit. This course has three emphases: First it is designed to help you become aware of your spirit. All 1400 verses of Scripture that deal with the heart and spirit of man are closely considered with the one supreme objective of learning to sense your spirit and the Spirit of Christ within your spirit. From there you go on to examine the anointing of the Holy Spirit and how the anointing can be increased in your life. Finally, you will try to get to know the Holy Spirit as a Person.
REN208 War in the Spirit (Course Syllabus) 3 credits
“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers….” How often are Christians caught unaware of the enemy who rages around them seeking to devour them. With proper understanding and perspective, we can effectively engage the enemy and defeat him and his efforts against our lives, families, ministries and homes. Be a trained and prepared soldier.

It includes spending thirty hours in actual, practical, personal evangelism.

An examination of the ministry gifts of apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers. Jesus gave gifts to men. Discover how these gifts function together in the church “to prepare God’s people for works of service”. This study will help many understand God’s call on their lives.
MIN211 Building Dynamic Teams (Course Syllabus) 1 credit
“…they ordained them elders in every church…” (Acts 14:23). Biblical precedent indicates that local churches were governed by a team of elders. God never let the rulership of the body rest on the shoulders of one man, knowing that each of us has weaknesses and limitations, and that no one man can completely represent full truth, wisdom and power as Jesus did. This course will help local church leadership function more effectively as a team, honoring the gifts of all. Prerequisites: LEA103 Gifted to Succeed (required); MIN210 Five Fold Ministry Gifts (recommended). This course will be most useful if you are currently part of a leadership team.
LEA303 Developing the Leader Within (Course Syllabus) 3 credits
This course is designed to help you develop the attitudes, skills and character traits you will need to become the leader God has called you to be. You may need to establish new patterns of thought and action, and break old habits that have been keeping you back. If you truly devote yourself to the requirements of this course, you will be a more effective and successful leader at the end of it.
LEA310 Apprenticed to Leadership (Course Syllabus) 3 credits
Mentoring or apprenticeship was Jesus’ style of training. He committed Himself to twelve intense relationships for about a year and a half, raising up leaders after Him who turned the world upside down for His sake. In this course, we will explore the mentoring relationship from both sides: as an apprentice who is learning from a leader and as a leader who is developing his team. (It is possible and beneficial to be in both positions at the same time – continuing to grow and learn from those who are ahead of us while leading and developing others into their potential.) We will discuss what is involved in a good mentoring relationship, responsibilities of the mentor and the apprentice, how one enters and terminates such relationships, and very practical steps for developing leaders who will stand with you, help carry your load, and continue your vision after you are gone. “There is no success without a successor.”
An independent study designed to familiarize yourself with the geography, culture, climate, politics, religions, and specific challenges of the nation to which you will be ministering.

Jesus’ leadership approach with His “staff” ran counter to most of the management styles and techniques employed today. In this course, you will explore the three categories of strengths behind Jesus’ leadership techniques: the strength of self-mastery, the strength of action, and the strength of relationships. You will learn a plan to heighten your awareness level in each category and to assist you in the process of mastering them all, which is necessary for you to become an empowered leader in this millennium.
MIN310 Experiencing God in the Small Group (Course Syllabus) 3 credits
