Description

This course explores the emerging and traditional churches, as we seek to discover a third way to be the Church in the 21st century. 'Deep Church' is the phrase C.S. Lewis used to describe the body of believers committed to mere Christianity. Unfortunately, church in our postmodern era has been marked by a certain shallowness. This course brings hope to those who may be fed up with contemporary pragmatism by offering alternative visions for this present culture. While some traditional churches have reacted negatively and/or defensively, we will seek to bring the best insights from all sides of the issue to forge a third way between emerging and traditional. We plan to offer a measured appreciation and affirmation as well as a balanced critique. This is done by providing constructive models from church planting experience and painting a picture of what this alternate, deep church looks like - a missional church committed to both its own culture and its Christian tradition, valuing innovation in worship, arts, and community (mission) but also creeds, confessions, and historic patterns of worship and discipleship (tradition).

Lectures include:

  • Overview and Introduction to Mission and the Great Tradition
  • Worship
  • Evangelism
  • Ecclesiology and Culture
