Many contemporary 'missional church' discussions have led either to creative practices without deep theological roots or to rigorous theology that lacks freedom to experiment with missional practices. This course will unfold a missional reading of scripture that inspires deeply-rooted, creative leadership.

We will trace the missional arc of Scripture and bring alive the original missional contexts in Biblical law, the prophets, wisdom literature, the gospels, and the Pauline epistles. Using this exegesis we will trace the contours of a missional theology, including how this lens enlivens our doctrines of God, of the Spirit, and of the church.

Through discussion we will imagine a fresh missional ecclesiology. We will ask how the missional core of the Biblical narrative informs the church's cultural engagement (locally, globally, personally and structurally) and what practices can form and sustain the deep engagement of a missional community.
