MACM 6313 (3-3-0) Developing Neighborhood Churches in Urban Settings
This course will explore a biblical, socio-cultural, and historical framework of urban spaces and God’s work/actions in order to imagine and develop local congregations rooted in urban neighborhoods. Urban spaces are the places where neighborhoods are built in order to provide the environment to build relationships and develop the trust needed to re-weave the social and spiritual fabric of communities. In the midst of constant and massive changes in society, the Spirit of God is at work both in the church and in the neighborhood. Students will seek to imagine what the church might look like and learn to discern what God is doing in order to fulfill the biblical mandate of making disciples in urban communities.
