Ephesiology Master Classes fills a gap that no group or no idea is filling. I love the idea of an academically rigorous and immensely practical digital equipping of leaders toward kingdom ministry. That’s a powerful combination.
Jeff Christopherson, Author, Co-Founder, and Missiologist, Send Institute
Ephesiology Master Classes is valuable because it allows the student to connect with a wide array of theologians who are also practitioners. Learning from those who are also doing allows the student to not only understand the facts of missiology, but also gain the insight that comes from wisdom of the instructors who are applying what they know to the mission. Truth, saturated in practice that yields wisdom is the best well to drink from when training for ministry.
