God, the Church and the World
KAIROS is a foundational course on world Christian mission. It brings out God’s heart for all the nations of the world and His desire to use His people to be a blessing to them. KAIROS emphasizes the importance of ministering to cultures that still have few or no indigenous churches.
KAIROS is designed to educate, inspire and challenge Christians to meaningful participation in God’s heart for all the nations. It is a tool God is using to help transform the worldview of believers, so they see themselves as having been blessed in order to be a blessing to all people groups.
Format and content
KAIROS is a nine-session course that covers four major areas:
Biblical – We discover that mission lies at the center of God’s concern and that an overriding theme throughout the whole Bible is God blessing His people to be a blessing to all people groups.
Historical – God’s mission purpose can be seen throughout history. We gain much from studying the past successes and failures of the church in the area of mission expansion.
Strategic – We learn about strategy and key mission strategies that bear fruit in reaching unreached people groups in today’s world. Every believer and church has a significant role to play.
Cultural – Mission involves crossing cultures. We learn what culture is and see what it takes to communicate and make disciples in a culture different from our own.
Learning methods and activities
KAIROS uses a variety of learning methods and activities such as:
Prayer for Least Reached Peoples
Introductions to Readings
Small Group Interaction
Special Cultural Activities
KAIROS can be conducted using several formats. The most common format is one evening a week for nine weeks. It can also be conducted over several weekends or as an intensive course over four and a half days.
