Three decades ago we came back to the USA from Haiti for what we thought would be a one-year "home assignment" or furlough. Southern Nazarene University knew that I had just finished a D.Min. in cross-cultural Christian missions from Denver Seminary. So, SNU asked if I would serve as the "Garner Chair of Missions" professor for that year, teaching classes on world evangelism and Christian missions while I also traveled to local churches promoting a global vision. That was in 1988.
Well, 25 years later when I retired, I was still there, teaching missiology or Christian missions, caring for the Missionary Kids who were SNU students, and directing world missions outreach projects, including Work & Witness projects. I spent most of the 90s as district Nazarene Missions International (NMI) president for the Nazarene churches of Northwest Oklahoma. My focus has been, and is the global harvest. I am still teaching online classes for Northwest Nazarene University, Nazarene Bible College and European Nazarene College.
This web site has materials and resources from my missions and world evangelism classes as well as from my promotional and mobilization work with Nazarene Missions International. There are also pages for General Education classes which I also taught: Introduction to Biblical Literature, Christian Thought and Ministry, Church and Society.
"Missiology? What does that mean?"
Missiology is the study of cross-cultural, world missionary outreach. It looks at every aspect of missionary work.
