These updates usually just mention actual physical events that you can drive to. However, there are some great events coming up that are online. For example, you can take the Encountering the World of Islam class online. An excellent class with some great material. There is also the Perspectives course which is available online. Check them out.
January 7-13 – Perspectives Intensive – New Freedom, PA
So you have always wanted to take the “Perspectives on the World Christian Movement” class but could never make it work out with your schedule. It always happened to be on a night of the week which wouldn’t work. Well, how about cramming a semester’s worth of Perspectives into one week? You can still do the reading before and after the class itself, but you’ll have one week exposure to multiple teachers. Definitely worth the investment. Check out their website.
Jan 15-Feb 2 – Missionary Care Foundations Course – Richmond, VA
Couse is designed for all who want to care for missionaries at all stages of the missionary life cycle. This could be anyone from the missionaries themselves, to caring church members, to missionary team leaders, to those who serve in training, personnel or outreach. Get more info here.
