Since 1974, more than 80,000 believers in North America and 20,000 around the world have taken the Perspectives on the World Christian Movement course. Each year about 200 classes are hosted in churches around the country.
This 16-week course (worth two hours of college credit) will start on January 11 at Tulsa Bible Church, 5838 S. Sheridan Road. Enroll online at perspectives.org
A spokesman said Perspectives helps believers from all walks of life see how they can get threaded into God’s story of redeeming people from every tribe, tongue and nation to Himself. 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. It isn’t a class about missions, but a course on how every believer can be intimately woven into His story of God using His people to be a blessing to all the people of the earth. There are 15 different instructors, biblical scholars, missionaries, pastors, professors and mobilizers. That includes a businessman who is using his company to bless an impoverished African country, or a pastor from a local church, or a missionary fresh back from Timbukto (an actual city in North Africa.)
