Olivet Theological College & Seminary newly offered Exploring the Life and Theology of Influential Christian Missionaries over the Fall quarter.
Christian missionaries have impacted and shaped history in their relentless pursuit of the Great Commission. This course, conducted online and co-led by Dr. Sarah LaFleur in English and Dr. Rachael Mak in Chinese, explored the life, theology, and contributions of some of the most influential missionaries in history who continue to be an inspiration to believers today.
With the term coming to an end, reflections are pouring in:
“As a missionary in South Africa, I could understand the heart of David Brainerd who pioneered alone in the area of the Indians in America. Unlike him, I am here with my family. He is so great that he could overcome his loneliness. I can see that he adheres to this core doctrine in his heart: ‘salvation can only be achieved by the redeeming grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.’ In the end, the Indians saw the difference between their traditional sacrifice and the sacrificial love of Jesus Christ -only Jesus could give them ultimate peace in their heart,” shared Terese He, student and missionary in South Africa.
