Content

This unit invites integrative study of two theological concepts: hope and mission, and the relationship between them. It will entail biblical and theological study of the grounds and meaning of Christian hope. It will also require reflection upon the implications of that hope in specific aspects of mission, as identified by the student. The unit will draw upon the student’s theological studies across a range of disciplines, towards an integrated application in their own context.

The Capstone unit is undertaken within the final two semesters of a Masters Degree.
