Class: Contemporary Models of Missional Leadership
Taught by Dr. Paul Alexander, President
This course seeks to allow the student to evaluate a variety of models for leadership. With an eye on sustainability and viability, the student is encouraged to explore different models, identify such models currently in practice, and be able to motivate appropriate principles for his or her own leadership context.

Class: The Biblical Theology of Justice
Taught by Dr. Noel Sanderson, Director of External and Online Programs
Combining biblical studies and theology, this course identifies the overarching biblical narrative of God’s love for the poor, the widow, the orphan, and the foreigner. Based on the Talmudic concept of Jubilee this course will trace the messianic story of the Bible culminating in the coming of Christ to bring the message of the Kingdom of God. Having established a theological rationale, this course will then explore contemporary models of expressing God’s Kingdom through acts of service, the establishment of ministries of mercy, and the responsibility of the contemporary church to be a voice for the oppressed and an advocate for the poor.
