Hello Friends of Harbor House,

I wanted to let you know that the new roof at Harbor House is underway!  Last week, the crew tore off the old roof and this week they are putting on the new.  It's really exciting to see (and hear)!

This effort would not have been possible without your generosity, so once again, we want to say THANK YOU for partnering with us and helping this dream become a reality.

Please feel free to come by anytime to see the progress.   

 

So grateful,

Kacie

 

 

What is Perspectives?

 Perspectives on the World Christian Movement is an advanced discipleship course for serious Christians.  It seeks to understand the heart of God, encouraging students to go deep and go out.  Over 15 weeks, this course studies four perspectives on the Kingdom of God. 

 
It begins with the Biblical perspective:  the Biblical foundations for establishment and growth of the Kingdom of God, beginning in Genesis and continuing through Revelation. 
 
It examines the historical perspective, the history of the world from God’s perspective – how has He advanced the Kingdom in every different age.  It explores the cultural perspective, how to understand the gospel in ways that are compelling for different cultures, not compromising the gospel, but also not insisting on western cultural values as part of the package. 
 
And finally it presents the strategic perspective.  How can we join what God is doing and participate in Kingdom advance and what are strategies for doing it more effectively?  This includes concepts like ‘unreached people groups’, ‘heart language,’ mandate for justice, and business as mission.  The course is presented using a curriculum developed by the US School of World Missions, a textbook of collected essays, journal articles and book selections from many leading authors, and a different (live) pastor, professor or missionary lecturer every week.

 

Here are links to a couple of youtube videos that give an overview and some testimonials:
