What is Perspectives?
Perspectives is a dynamic, 15-week course designed to impact the way you view the world around you. In Perspectives, you will have your eyes opened to the heart and purpose of God, and better understand how you can take part in His work across the globe, from the street on which you live to the deserts of distant lands.
A fantastic array of pastors, theologians, and international missiologists will challenge and inspire you to see just how big God is and how much He desires that all might come to know Him through Jesus. Whether you are single, married, a student, a homemaker, a professional, or retired, Perspectives will bless and challenge your life and direction.
With our vision being a gospel-centered community on mission to make disciples of all nations, we desire every follower of Jesus to discover their unique world-sized role and participate 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 for any follower of Jesus.
What is the format of Perspectives?
Perspectives is presented in a convenient, online format. The weekly lessons and readings are completed throughout the week at your own pace. There is also regular interaction with others in the course from Highland (online and possibly in-person) as well as with the course coordinator. The material is arranged around four aspects or “perspectives” of God’s global purpose — biblical, historical, cultural, and strategic.
Perspectives begins the week of October 5 and goes until February 7, with one week off at Thanksgiving and two weeks off at Christmas and New Years.
