Perspectives Intensive Course 2020

The Perspectives Course presents an overview of the Biblical, Historical, Cultural, and Strategic paradigms of the world Christian movement. Typically taught over 15 consecutive weeks, the "Intensive" class presents all lectures in six days, for those whose schedules more easily accommodate that format - pastors, mission workers, college students, and those that have busy lifestyles. Our instructors represent a wide variety of backgrounds, education, and experience. Lectures are complemented by class discussion, prayer, and cross-cultural activities. Students may enroll at Certificate or Key Reading level, or for college credit (see below), and have the same 15 weeks to complete the course work as other classes.

How does an Intensive work?

All 15 lesson lectures are heard in class throughout the week. Students will then have an additional 15 weeks to complete all the Readings, Reviews, Personal Responses, and Project (Certificate/Credit Level). Key readers need only complete five personal responses to the reading.

Work is submitted online, which requires access to a computer and internet connection. It is recommended, but not required, that study through the first two lessons be completed prior to the start of the course (they are available on the website).
