What Students Say

  • It is incredible studying in such beautiful countryside within a stunning country house. It was great to study and share life alongside such a diversity of students from all over the world who were very down-to-earth and friendly. Discussing deep issues generated from the short course with my classmates late into the night was one of the best advantages for the interactive nature of the course and living on campus for a few days.

Principles of Integral Mission and Development

20th - 23rd March 2017

This course will draw on both Biblical insight and current development thinking, to critique the conventional view and practice of ‘development’ and set out an alternative biblical view of holistic or Integral mission and development.

Topics will include understanding poverty from a biblical perspective, examining the roots of global inequality, critiquing conventional development theories and exploring approaches to community empowerment. The role and process of world view transformation, good governance, and structural change including advocacy and non-violent direct action will also be discussed. Issues of gender, disability, disaster management and peace-building will also be explored both from a ‘mainstream’ secular perspective, and from a Biblical angle.

Throughout the course key principles will be drawn out that can be applied in a variety of contexts both in the global North and South.
