Teacher: Jasmine Alnutt
Credits: 2
Textbooks: From Jerusalem to Irian Jaya: A Biographical History of Christian Missions
Fulfills: General Elective or Missions & Evangelism Emphasis


This course will explore the lives of various Christian missionary “Greats,” particularly those of the “Great Century of Missions,” the 1800s. During each lecture we will be studying a different individual in order to take an in-depth look at their lives and their ministries; we will thus be able to draw out practical life lessons and develop a deeper perspective of ministry on the mission field. There are two main goals in this course: 1) to strengthen your walk with Jesus Christ by studying those who simply surrendered to and obeyed God 2) to grow in your knowledge of these missionary lives so that you will be able to encourage and share with others what you have learned.
