Perspectives | Aug 21- Nov 21 | 6:00 p.m. | Woodland Heights
God has a “world sized” role for every Christian in His global purpose. Whether people go to distant countries or stay at home is a secondary issue. The primary issue is what most people are hungry to discover: vision to live a life of purpose. Discovering that vision makes this course valuable, and perhaps crucial, for any Christian. Perspectives is a 15 week course designed around four vantage points or “perspectives” – Biblical. Historical, Cultural, and Strategic. Each one highlights different aspects of God’s global purpose. Perspectives will meet Tuesdays beginning August 21 from 6-9:00 p.m. at Woodland Heights Baptist Church. The cost is $270.
