Course Description

The Kairos Course is a nine-session, interactive course designed to educate, inspire, and challenge Christians to active and meaningful participation in the World Christian Movement. The course utilizes a variety of adult learning styles including group discussions, short lecture introductions, devotionals, video teaching, and student participation in specially designed activities.

Kairos looks at the four main areas of mission concern which are the Biblical, Historical, Strategic and Cultural dimensions of mission.


1.  God’s Purpose and Plan
We will discover, from the Bible, that mission lies at the centre of all God’s concern.

2.  Israel, The Covenant People
We will study God’s dealing with the nation of Israel in His desire to fulfil His purposes through them.

3.  The Messiah, the Message & the Messengers
We will see that God’s concern for all nations is still His central purpose as we move into the New Testament.


5. Mission Strategy
We consider the place, value and nature of strategy in world Christian mission.

6. The Task Remaining
We look at the mission task remaining, who and where the majority of the unreached are, and what methods should be used to reach them.

7. World Christian Teamwork
We look at the variety of exciting ways the whole church can and must get involved in accomplishing strategic world mission.


4.  Expansion of the World Christian Movement
We trace the advance of Christianity from its beginning to the present day


8.  Cross-Cultural Considerations
We address issues on communicating the gospel cross-culturally. We also look at aspects of church contextualization and its implications for seeing unreached communities of people discipled and won for Christ.

The Kairos Course is designed to lay a solid foundation in the life of the believer and of the local church, in world Christian mission.  From this foundation, exciting and meaningful missions endeavour, can result.
