Description: 

This course will educate students to understand the central spirit of missions and evangelism in the Orthodox Church. The first part of the course will focus on the lives, ministries and methods of the greatest Orthodox missionaries - the Apostle Paul and the early Christians, Cyril and Method ius, Innocent Veniaminov of Alaska, Nicholas Kasatkin of Japan- along with exemplar contemporary missionaries like Archbishop Anastasios of Albania. The second part of the course will apply the studied missionary methods to evangelism in the contemporary North American context. How should the Orthodox Church carry on this spirit of evangelism in its present reality in North America?
