“You Were MADE FOR MORE! Use what’s in you to bless the world around you!” That’s the motto of Perspectives.
Perspectives on the World Christian Movement is a 15 week life and learning opportunity that will change the way you view the world around you. This course is designed around four vantage points or “perspectives” – Biblical, Historical, Cultural and Strategic. In it, you will have your eyes opened to the heart and purpose of God, and how you can take part in His work all over the world, from the urban streets of America to the rain forest and deserts of distant lands. A fantastic array of pastors, theologians, international missiologists and mobilizers will challenge and inspire you with their personal experiences that will open your eyes to see just how big God is, and how much He desires that all might come to know Him. Whether you are single, married, a student, a homemaker, a professional or retired, Perspectives will bless and challenge your life and direction.
For those in the Houston, Texas area, registration is now open for the Perspectives Fall 2018 credited course, which begins on August 20th. An early bird discount is available until July 15th. Click here for more information or to register.
