AS5 Mission in the Anglican Tradition NEW - Spring 2023 

Time: 9:00 am – 10:15 am 

Instructor: Rev. Dr. Joshua Samuel 

“The Church exists by mission as fire exists by burning,” (Emil Brunner). As mission is vital for the life of the Church, we will approach study of mission systematically with special focus on the Anglican tradition. The course will begin with the basics, namely the understanding of mission in Scripture and the early church. We will then consider interpretations of mission in relation to the Anglican church’s approach in the colonial era and in postcolonial contexts. The final part of the course will look at key elements and expressions of mission in the Episcopal branch of the Jesus Movement in the United States, focusing on topics such as evangelism, church planting, and social justice.
