a particular attitude toward or way of regarding something; a point of view.
We are all made for more. The “more than” can vary. More than the American Dream, more than a job title or a career advancement or your culture’s expectations and values, more than the limits you put on yourself. Made for More is an invitation to expand your understanding of purpose.
What is Perspectives?
Perspectives is a discipleship course that takes you through the Bible, back in time, and across the globe. A fantastic array of pastors, theologians, missiologists and mobilizers will challenge and inspire you as they help bring the course content to life with their personal experiences and expertise. You will join a community of believers as you journey together toward a better understanding who God is, what He is doing, and your role within that. Whether you are single, married, a student, a homemaker, a professional or retired, Perspectives will encourage and challenge you to live on purpose, with purpose.
God has a “world-sized” role for every Christian in His 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.
What is God’s Heart for All People
Back in Time
From Genesis to the prophets, Jesus Christ to the early church, and Constantine to today, you will see how God has been moving, how the global Church has responded, and what the greatest needs in world evangelization remain today. Perspectives will sharpen your focus on the world and help stimulate your thinking about the Great Commission. The course surveys the global cause of Christ in four dimensions: Biblical, Historical, Cultural, and Strategic.
It isn’t a class about missions, but a course on how every believer can be intimately woven into the story of God using His people to be a blessing to all the peoples of the earth.
