Expand Your Perspective
Perspectives is an intensive fifteen-week course designed to educate the people of God about the purposes of God. The class helps believers from all walks of life see how they fit into God’s story of redeeming people from every tribe, tongue, and nation to Himself. From Genesis to the prophets, Jesus Christ to the early church, and Constantine to today, you will see how God has been moving, how the global Church has responded, and what the greatest needs in world evangelization remain today. It’s a course on how every believer can be intimately woven into the story of God using His people to be a blessing to all the peoples of the earth.

How does Perspectives Work?
Perspectives on the World Christian Movement is a Christian education course designed to help believers learn more about God’s heart for all nations and how believers worldwide can play an active role in the Great Commission. It is run locally, coordinated regionally, and supported behind the scenes by a national office. It is currently in over 200 locations each year around the USA with many more locations worldwide.
What happens each week?
Different instructors from around the country come to teach the class, depending on their areas of expertise and experience.
Classes normally have two one-hour teaching sessions with a break in the middle, and some time at the beginning and end to review last week’s and next week’s lessons. Teaching formats vary each week depending on the instructor’s personality. It is not uncommon to have small group discussions, short videos, incredible testimonies, Q&A, and teaching.
WHo runs perspectives?
The Perspectives Study Program is a ministry of Frontier Ventures, formerly the U.S. Center for World Mission – a non-denominational parachurch ministry that works to catalyze kingdom breakthrough among the unreached. It is run locally around the country by teams of volunteers, usually alumni, who have been personally impacted by Perspectives and have a desire to mobilize their community to God’s global purposes. The class is hosted by various churches or non-profits around the country.
