CHST 4335 (3-3-0) Biographies of Outstanding Missionaries
The course consists of reading biographies of inspiring examples of Christian living and ministry from the history of missions. Biographies from the early church, medieval missions, the modern missionary movement, and recent missionary leaders are read. These personal models for kingdom work are instructive in learning personal habits that can achieve greatness in servant leadership and provide case studies by which missiological principles and strategies may be arrived at inductively. The class considers how examples of lives lived to honor God have made significant contributions in very different settings around the world.
