You can try and take the Bible out of mission, but you can't take mission out of the Bible. Biblical theology and authentic Christian mission go hand-in-hand, and this course uses both to strengthen each other.
If you are passionate about the Bible, and passionate about God's mission in the world, then specialise in Bible and Mission with Redcliffe to develop a missional hermeneutic that will transform your ministry and understanding of Scripture.
Bible and Mission is a study stream of the MA in Contemporary Missiology; so completing this programme will give you an MA in Contemporary Missiology (Bible and Mission).
The MA in Contemporary Missiology (Bible and Mission) is validated by the University of Gloucestershire.
