Episode 125: Thinking Like a Missionary

On this Ephesiology Podcast, Andrew and Michael respond to one listener’s question about the importance for pastors and church leaders to think like a missionary. Perhaps more importantly, they discuss the role of APEST in equipping the entire church with skills and abilities to cross cultures, speak to cultural issues, do the work of an evangelist, as well as care for those in the church and teach proper doctrine. The conversation also engages with the idea that the dogmatic manner of some theological systems often stifle productive discussions in different cultures and do not allow for theology to be expressed in a local context. Join us for the first of a series of podcasts responding to listener’s questions.

With the continuing decline of Western Christianity and the expansion of the gospel around the world, church planting can play a vital role in the evangelization of people in the post-Christian cultural milieu as well as in the majority world. This Master of Arts degree is designed to equip those who sense God’s leading into the challenging ministry of starting new churches. The 48-credit hour degree focuses on biblical, theological, and missiological competencies to effectively launch, ground, lead, multiply, and sustain healthy, reproducing churches.
