international, 15-lesson course on the World Christian Movement taken by over 1/4 million people

Experience 15 powerful lessons that have equipped thousands of every day believers with greater vision, hope, and passion. In Perspectives, scripture, history, culture, and strategy converge to reveal the unfolding of God's redemptive purposes. He is on a mission to bless the peoples of the earth, and you're invited to join him.

“The goal of Perspectives is not to make missionaries out of all believers, rather to have all believers be on mission with God” (Dr. Ralph Winter, US Center for World Mission - now, Frontier Ventures). This is about mobilizing the whole body of Christ to become “World Christians,” people who live intentionally to see God globally worshipped,

The Perspectives course is not designed to equip or recruit people who aspire to become missionaries. Some students are indeed exploring the possibility of working as missionaries. But the Perspectives course is designed for people of every walk of life to live their lives with obedient, strategic intentionality that Christ will be glorified in an evangelized world. With world evangelization as the overriding purpose of their lives, where they may live is secondary. Of course, anywhere they may live in today’s world, they will encounter people from other cultures. We want every Perspectives student to grasp the challenges and possibilities of cross-cultural mission. Ultimately, we want them to find their part in that mission wherever they may live, and to become well-informed supporters of those who do cross-cultural work. 

Missions is not just for missionaries. Every believer should be living a life of significance in God’s global purpose!
