Perspectives: “God has a world-sized role for every Christian in God’s global purpose: Whether people go to distant countries or stay at home is a secondary issue. The primary issue is what most people are hungry to discover vision to live a life of purpose. Discovering that vision makes this course valuable, and perhaps crucial, for any Christian.  This class will introduce you to “Perspectives: a 15 week course that will be offered this year, designed around four vantage points or ‘perspectives’ – Biblical, Historical, Cultural and Strategic.  Each one highlights different aspects of God’s global purpose.”  Facilitator will be Roberta Updegraff
