This class is for the Master of Divinity and the Master of Evangelical Theology programs.  Due to the rapid globalization in the world, it is becoming increasingly important to understand culture and the cultural context of ministry. Christian workers in Europe as well as other parts of the world have an increasing challenge of relating to people of other cultures due to global movement through immigration and the plight of refugees. Thus, it is essential that Christian leaders have a good grasp of culture in order to be more effective in ministry. The course examines the following: definition, nature, and values of culture, worldview, cultural problems (monoculturalism and ethnocentrism), transculturalism, and approaches to ministry in culture.
