Introduction to Japanese People, Culture & Perspective:
The three classes, Japan 101, 102, and 103, can be taken in any order.
Do you have a heart for Japanese people but don’t know much about their historical and cultural background? If so, this 8-week study program will give you a brief background and understanding of Japan from a Christian point of view.
In this 8-week study program, we will explore the core concepts and values that form the Japanese worldview. Understanding these concepts is a crucial component in effectively sharing the love of Jesus.
This eight-week study program will explore how to share a gospel message that is less foreign and more acceptable to the Japanese heart and mind. It will explore using Japanese redemptive analogies, literature, religion, religious consciousness, festival days and ceremonies and good Japanese communication to address objections to the gospel and bridge the cultural gap for Jesus.
Cultural Specific Evangelism:
The two classes, CSE 101 and CSE 201 must be taken in order as they build upon one another.
This 8-week study program will give a general introduction to culture-specific evangelism. Through this study, we will be able to more effectively explain the gospel to people of different worldviews and cultures.
This 8-week study program will explore principles for presenting a non-western cultural gospel within a Japanese context.
This course is offered in Japanese only.
