The faculty of the School of Justice Mission are deeply committed to participating in the mission of God through serving people in the context of international legal and justice issues. As academic practitioners, each faculty person not only knows their subject areas but has actively served in a the justice arena through law enforcement, litigation and legal services.
The programs of the School of Justice Mission are designed to complement the academic and experiential background of grassroots missional leaders in a variety of vocational mission endeavors. The goal is to equip missional leaders with an internatonal legal perspective related to their area of intended service in order to prepare them for the legal entanglements that come out of their joining the work of God in the world especially when it involves transnational relationships. It is not our purpose to train people to become attorneys and our programs do not meet requirements to sit for the bar exam or practice law. The School of Justice Mission offers degree programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
The School of Justice Mission is under the leadership of the Dean who reports to the Provost. Periodic reports are made directly to the University faculty & Provost, and through the University President, to the Board of Trustees. The faculty conducts its day-to-day business primarily through its division and department meetings.
All faculty must subscribe to Missional University’s Mission, Vision & Core Values Statement, Statement of Faith, and Ethos Statement, as well as meet the academic and professional requirements of the field in which they are teaching. The Dean and/or the department chair interview(s) all candidates for faculty teaching positions. All teachers are evaluated for their instructional performance in each course.
