(EV703) This course provides a survey of the Kingdom of God as it pertains to evangelism, missions and church planting. Many people talk about the Kingdom of God, but few understand its operational dynamics. Starting with a deep biblical discussion of what the term “Gospel” really meant in its original context, we will develop an understanding of “Kingdom Outbreak.” This term encapsulates the massive shift that happens when the Kingdom of God is active in a church, or a city or a region, along with key indicators of and results of that outbreak. We will also explore how such Kingdom Outbreaks can be derailed if the message shifts, and we will explore some key points of departure in recent times. We will then turn to a study of how the Apostle Paul orchestrated three such Kingdom Outbreaks on his second and third missionary journeys, along with key aspects of this strategy when it is in use. Finally, we will conclude with case studies of how this exact strategy is being used to catalyze regional outpourings in several nations in Asia and Oceania. Kingdom Outbreak is a reproducible, scalable strategy that has the capability of shifting the calculus of evangelism and church planting even in the Western world. Come join us as we explore a new way of thinking about taking our cities and society for Christ.
