This course will explore the relationship between the gospel, church and culture, and what their interaction means for leadership in today's church. It will begin by examining the role of culture in human society, and will then discuss four key doctrines of the church that inform an understanding of culture. Worldview will be examined as a tool for understanding culture, and the course will look specifically at what the shift from modernity to post-modernity means for the church and its mission. This course will include Biblical material, reference the experience of cross-cultural missionaries, and examine aspects of Canadian and American culture. These will form the backdrop for discussion about what it means to be a missional church in contemporary north America.
