Missions strategies and tactics

Tempted to cheat on some schoolwork?
Before you do, read SNU's academic integrity policy

This is a course in the methodology of missions. It will cover all kinds of issues. Sometimes I've even told students that it is subtitled "Coffee Break on the Mission Field" since we will talk about many of the things that missionaries talk about when they get together:

  • Use of radio in evangelism
  • Missionary and national church relationships
  • Leadership training models
  • Starting in brand new countries
  • Church planting
  • Bible translation
  • Educating their kids
  • Effective management of resources in Christian missions

Check out the new bullet-proof polo shirts at geek.com. (Just go to http://www.gizmag.com/bullet-proof-polo-shirt/10187/ and search for "polo shirts".) These might seem like the latest fashion-conscience missionary-wear. However, check out the price tag.

Writing
Standards
Most courses at SNU contain a writing component.
I expect students' written work to be focused, well developed, organized and relatively free of grammatical, punctuation, and spelling errors.
Papers falling too far short of this standard may simply be returned without a grade to the students for revision and resubmission.
See my writing checklist.
