How this course relates to missional core values

Biblically based

students will have the opportunity to master the skillset for thriving in this sector as a leader for Christ. Learning to apply what is taught in the classroom to real life issues will allow the student to help others in the criminal justice field with an unbiased mind and thought process.

Missionally driven

The ideas of justice and righteousness are deeply connected in the Bible. Both are richly applied to many things, from fair weights and measures, to just legal proceedings, to good personal conduct, to honesty and truthfulness, to an individual’s right or just claim, to employers’ economically just behaviors, to judges’ fair decisions, to the governmental responsibilities .

Contextually informed

In correlation with the School's mission and vision, professors will lead and equip students for the purpose of preparing leaders to join God's mission of spiritually transforming people and communities.

Interculturally focused

Understanding the real life issues in a correctional facility will allow the student to pursue a career in the field knowing how to apply their learnings.

Practically minded

Create a foundational instruction on addressing racial and cultural disparity in our criminal justice system, providing resources and training tools for those in the judicial, prosecutorial, and defense agencies, as well other members of the legal professional community.

Experientially transformed

The practical aspect of this course helps students to engage in the works of mission in the criminal justice system because of the character and activities of God and His mission.
