This course combines key factors in contemporary missions: the urbanization of the world, the globalization of the city, and world evangelization through church planting. You will begin by investigating the theological and biblical foundations of the city and the expansion of God's kingdom. Then, you will analyze principles of intentionalized church planting, will walk through the process of church planting, will discuss the special challenges posed by urban settings, and will discuss practical ministry approaches to those challenges. You will also engage in a group learning experience in which you apply the course material to actual urban church planting opportunities.
