EDUC 1380: Outreach Principles and Techniques in The Summit Lighthouse

Credits: 1

Number of Weeks: 8

Typically offered in: Fall

Outreach is a fundamental component of church and organizational growth. It can take many forms—from formal presentations for hundreds of people to small informal book study groups, heart-to-heart contact with individuals one on one, or reaching out to many seekers through the use of social media and technology.

This course will give you a solid grounding in the principles and techniques of outreach within The Summit Lighthouse, covering all aspects of outreach ranging from preparation and logistics to follow-up. It will help you to define your unique target market and teach you how to speak to the “one” no matter how many people you are addressing.

Whatever type of outreach you embrace, the key element is embodying the message of personal Christhood so that you can become a magnet for spiritual seekers through the power of the Holy Spirit.

This course has an emphasis on reading, journaling and dialoging in forums. Students will also submit short papers.

Students will be assessed on the following course assignments:
