Understanding Christian Missions and Islam
This certificate program is not currently available.
For 2017-18, NYSB is offering a 3-hour course, T400K - Kairos: God, the Church and the World, on Thursdays during the Fall I Quarter.
This certificate program is an effort to train and prepare followers of Christ to take the Biblical mandate for missions very seriously. In these courses, students will learn how the study of God’s mission in the Bible can radically change one’s church vision both inwardly and outwardly. With a clear concentration on Islam, this program will provide an overview of Islamic history, culture, and advancement of the Islamic religion, and provide guidelines for being an effective Christian witness to Muslims.
These courses will examine the progressive unfolding of God’s mission through Scripture from creation, the raising up of a people of God, to the full revelation of God’s redemptive purposes for all nations through the life and ministry of Jesus Christ and how, today God is working among the Muslim communities to draw them to Himself.
