Here is your mission

Rather than seeing ‘mission’ as something ‘special’ Christians do, the church is increasingly communicating that Jesus sends us out to continue his work and share his life wherever we are. This subject builds on the idea of developing a missional mindset, learning how to analyse the cultures around us, Australian as well the cultures of other races. It also has a module focused on those going on short-term missions in a school or church setting.
