 Course Description:

Jesus made it clear in Matt. 24:14 that “this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.”  What part does the average believer have in completing this specific, yet awesome task?  In this course, the student will learn about the “top line” blessing that God has for the church, and the “bottom line” blessing that the church must deliver to the world.  You will discover the heart of God for missions as it is revealed from Genesis through Revelation.
