God has a "world-sized" role for every Christian in His global purpose. Whether people go to distant countries or stay at home is a secondary issue. The primary issue is what most people are hungry to discover: vision to live a life of purpose. Discovering that vision makes this course valuable, and perhaps crucial, for any Christian. Perspectives is a fifteen week course designed around four vantage points or "perspectives" — Biblical, Historical, Cultural and Strategic. Each one highlights different aspects of God's global purpose.

Commitment: You are asked to attend a 15 week course on campus. Perspectives understands that life sometimes gets busy and that circumstances arise in which you will not be able to attend. To assist in your absence, there is an online recording of your class which will be viewable for a limited time. Beside your attendance, you will be asked to do some reading pertaining to the lesson topic. The estimated reading will take you 2 hours (or less) each week (at the Basic level). Likewise, you will complete five personal responses (reflections on what you are learning) throughout the semester.
