MSTEE Practical Work: Paul’s ‘missionary journeys’ had the aim of spreading the gospel, and building up the churches. The practical work for this course is to plan a project either of service or mission aimed at spreading the gospel, or of teaching/training aimed at building up the church.
The project should be planned, carried out and evaluated as a group, with each member of the group having responsibility for a defined section of the program.
