MM795 – Special Topic: Reaching Your Community

This course will help students to explore reaching their community through both good news and good works. Essentially it is a course in practical theology; however, students will engage with dimensions of sociology, missiology and theology to examine topics as varied as place-sharing, the art of neighbouring, community development and justice making, establishing social and community ministries and becoming an ‘Alongsider’. The Course will employ an integrative approach, combining features of NZ society & culture, Christian social work and urban mission.
