We chose David Livingstone as an example of a life dedicated to service in the mission of God. Missional University encourages its students to emulate the passion and vision of David Livingstone to join in serving in the mission of God wherever God leads them in many different vocational capacities.
The Livingstone Signature Series is the missional centerpiece of the degree programs at Missional University. Each degree program (Associate, Bachelor degree completion, Bachelor 2+2 degrees, and Master's degrees) has a set of three courses that every student takes. These courses provide a foundational missional understanding:
A course that traces the theme of God's redemptive work in our world from Genesis to Revelation provides students with ways to see God at work all around them in everyday life. This course introduces the student to the missional nature of God, how He has been at work through human history, and ways in which Christian believers can participate in the work of God in the world around them.
A course that teaches how to understand the worldview perspectives of people you meet through an engaging conversation that may lead to opportunities to share your Christian faith. This course introduces students to ways to understand the viewpoints of others and develop appropriate missional approaches based upon knowing worldview perspectives.
A course that teaches Christians how to develop a personalized spiritual development process through the study of scripture, prayer and fellowship with other Christians that leads to engaging the needs of people around them together. Students discover practical and creative ways of deepening their personal spirituality allowing more engagement with not-yet Christians and the development of authentic missional community.
