Perspectives course kicks off Monday

The course, “Perspectives on the World Christian Movement,” begins Monday, Jan. 13, with speaker Bob Sjogren, author and president of UnveilinGLORY.

Perspectives is a 15-week course focusing on the biblical, historical, cultural and strategic aspects of God’s heart for the world and how every believer’s passions and talents are designed to be used for sharing that love, no matter where they are.

The first night is free and open for anyone to check out the course.

The course will be held from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Monday nights from Jan. 13 to May 4 at the Altoona Alliance Church, 3220 Pleasant Valley Blvd., and repeats on Tuesday nights at DiscipleMakers in State College.

The course focuses on how and why God threads everyday believers into His epic global story, allowing Christians to experience His heart for every tribe, tongue, people and nation and encounter the momentum of what He is doing in the world.

Students can choose their level of investment based on their time constraints. The course can be taken for key reading, certificate or optional academic or continuing education credit, available at high school, undergraduate and graduate level. Discounts and scholarships are available. The cost includes all books, 15 live speakers and supper each evening.

The Altoona and State College courses are partnering together to host Perspectives in the region. If participants miss a Monday class, they can attend the Tuesday session in State College and hear the same presentation, usually by the same speaker.

On April 6, the class will travel to State College for an ethnic meal and to attend the Central PA Missions Fair.

Opportunities to share breakfast with many of the speakers will be available on Tuesday mornings.

More information is available at www.perspectives .org. Participants can register for the “First Night Free” under “Class Pricing.” Registration is not required to attend the first session.
