Christian Mission

Monday to Thursday, 9am to 4 pm at Montreal Dio
September 10 to 13, 2018

Churches across Canada recognize that mission is central to their response to the good news of Jesus Christ. But just what mission means and what it looks like is not always clear. This course looks at the historical and theological roots of mission, while also introducing students to a variety of approaches to congregational mission, including community analysis, new monasticism, new church development, Eucharistic missiology, and much else. Students will leave with a renewed understanding of the meaning and significance of mission and practical ideas for thinking about mission in their own ministry contexts.

About the instructors: 

The Rev. Dr. Jesse Zink is principal of Montreal Diocesan Theological College. He has traveled and written widely about Anglican history and theology, including his book Backpacking through the Anglican Communion: A Search for Unity.


Dr. Roland De Vries is Director of Pastoral Studies of Presbyterian College. He has a record of effective congregational ministry, and oversees the field education program, teaching in areas such as preaching, worship, congregational leadership, and the theology and practice of ministry.
