Ministry of the Local Church

300 Ministry of the Local Church

What is the purpose of the ministry?  What is the “Church” all about?  Why does it exist?  How are you, the church, supposed to influence change in the world?  The church, built by Jesus Christ Himself, is the most powerful force in our world today.  If this is true, then why are we are not seeing the change?  This class will discuss the theology and historicity of the church.  We will also discuss the Biblical purpose of the church in its local setting.

Effective ministry in the urban church requires an ability to view the problems, resources, and purpose of the Church through the perspectives of Scripture, history, and culture.  This course will involve students in an examination of how urban Christians can minister through leadership, education, evangelism, worship, community formation, and social involvement.
