Apocalypse Now - Preaching the Book of Revelation
September 2017 Postgraduate Unit
Are you and your church prepared to fully welcome and share Christ with whoever walks through the door? Modern Australia’s diverse society means that in any ministry we are guaranteed to encounter other cultures. Whoever we are – fathers, mothers, sons or daughters, students from overseas, refugees or asylum seekers, Australian, Iranian, Sudanese, Chinese, or Korean – Revelation chapter 5 says that Christ lived, died, and rose again to ‘ransom people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation’.
This unit addresses questions of ethnicity and identity, cultural sensitivity and the challenges and opportunities associated with ministry in a diverse context. It will be of great benefit to those planning to serve in a variety of ministry roles, whether in Australia or overseas, with a particular emphasis on how multi-ethnicity shapes the exercise of the local church.
This unit includes one week of intensive study at SMBC, with pre-reading and assignments completed at home.
