An exciting interactive course that looks at our world from His perspective.
Can you picture yourself in a group of people, engaging in nine fascinating lessons together and when it’s all over, realizing you aren’t the same person you were at the beginning of the study? Kairos is an interactive course designed to educate, inspire and challenge Christians to participate meaningfully in world Christian mission.
Alycia from Calgary explains, “Kairos not only brings back the balance of a ‘blessed to be a blessing’ Christian lifestyle, but also plants and revives a desire to be missionally intentional in reaching the unreached nations of the world.”
The Kairos course appeals to a variety of adult learning styles through prayer for unreached peoples, growth-point peer discussion groups, short lectures and video teaching, and special cross-cultural activities.
Chris, who pastors in Saskatchewan, describes the mission course as, “a simple and practical way to understand, be challenged and integrate the Great Commission into each believer’s life.”
Kairos, borne out of the well-known Perspectives on the World Christian Movement course, was compiled in the Philippines by Living Springs International to help engage the Filipino church in world Christian mission. Since 1994, thousands of Filipinos have participated in Kairos. The Philippines now ranks as one of the top missionary-sending countries in the world. Kairos, in the meantime, has spread to 40 other countries and in 2013, it reached Canada. Alliance Seamless Link Advisor, Tim Mackenzie, recently completed the Kairos course. “I’ve come to a distinct ‘bend in the road’ in my mindset. I’ve been spending too much time concerned with things that don’t matter much, and far too little time engaged in what will last for eternity, but now I’m seeing things and people through a different lens.”
Dr. Ray Downey says, “The Kairos course was a game-changer for me. I must confess that as a ‘been-there, done-that’ retired International Worker, I was quite content to let a younger generation carry on with God’s mission in the world. Taking the course re-ignited my passion for personal involvement in seeing God’s rule triumph among all people groups on the earth.”
