Starting January 15

Perspectives is an awe-inspiring course that has profoundly impacted hundreds of thousands of students during the past 45 years. From Genesis to the prophets, Jesus to the early Church, and St. Augustine to the present, students learn how God moves, how the global Church responds, and the remaining task of world evangelization. Perspectives isn’t a course solely about world missions. It’s a study program rooted in Scripture, clarifying each believer’s remarkable opportunity to co-labor with God in His global purpose.

Cities for the Nations is hosting this class, which helps people understand missions more fully, here at FAC starting January 15. Cost is $250. Contact Tyrone Vinegar if you have questions or are interested in financial assistance.
