By considering theological foundations, this course is designed to help learners grow in understanding of the world they are called to reach. They will broaden their own thinking while tackling tough topics such as poverty and hypocritical attitudes. By remembering the Wesleyan tradition, they will stand on the Christian doctrines taught by one of the first evangelists – John Wesley, who boldly began field preaching outside the church walls.
In exploring these truths, learners will become empowered as theologians who understand that evangelism must be grounded in and motivated by love: love for God, God’s love for his children in Jesus, and love for neighbor.
The instructor will offer optional Zoom meetings for discussion during the course.
This course is eligible for 3.0 CEU.
Students are required to have the following texts for this course:
Transforming Evangelism:The Wesleyan Way Of Sharing Faith, by Henry H. Knight III and F. Douglas Powe, Jr.
Unshockable Love, by John Burke
