Why Missiology?

"Studying missiology allows you to engage the Scriptures with an eye toward culture, history, and practice. Personally, I cannot think of a more compelling subject for engaged thinkers who desire kingdom impact beyond their own scope of ministry. Ph.D. in Missiology students have the opportunity to grow into rigorous Great Commission academicians who contribute to the field while growing a love for our global neighbors."
