Syllabus / Intermediate


The Missiology of Archbishop Anastasios (Yannoulatos) of Albania and Practical Evangelism in Albania is a 3-credit summer class offered in May/June. The course provides an in-depth study of the life, missiology and writings of Archbishop Anastasios (Yannoulatos) of Albania and examines how he has practically lived out this missiology through his ministry in the Church of Albania. The course looks at the foundation and calling of missions.

As a part of the class, we study the resurrection of the Church of Albania over the past 20 years, examining and analyzing the successes of how the church has succeeded in living out the missiology of the Archbishop, and where the church has not yet lived up to this missiology.

The first week of the class is taught on campus at HCHC, followed by a 12-day mission practicum in Albania, where students witness the resurrection of the Church of Albania, meet missionaries and the indigenous leaders of the Church, and participate in an evangelism program within the country.

This class and trip are highly subsidized by the Missions Institute, which thus allows the students to participate in the class and trip for $1,000, including airfare.
