This course will challenge students to understand the Church?s central spirit of missions and evangelism and learn how the Gospel spread across diverse cross-cultural settings throughout the centuries. The course will look at the lives, ministries and methods of some of the greatest Orthodox missionaries - the Apostle Paul, Cyril and Methodios, Innocent Veniaminov, Nicholas Kasatkin of Japan, along with contemporary missionaries like Archbishop Anastasios of Albania among others ? and study how these missionaries needed to adapt the Gospel message to be incarnated in various cultures? This class will have a Spring Break practicum to Kenya on an OCMC mission trip or to Mexico through Project Mexico.
