Skills for mission

By on April 1, 2012

All Saints’ Cathedral College in Edmonton is committed to the five Marks of Mission of the Anglican Church of Canada. Last October, the college-a joint venture between All Saints’ Anglican Cathedral and the Anglican diocese of Edmonton-launched a virtual campus designed to help laity and clergy update their missional skills for today’s complex and challenging global village.The campus is located online but courses are given in person at Concordia University College of Alberta. “Our driving principle is to equip Christians to have a strong and credible voice in the world,” says Dr. Joanne Neal, academic dean and associate professor of education at Concordia. The college provides both degree-related and non-degree-related instruction. This month, it is offering an inaugural first round of four 15-hour courses at $75 apiece, with a special fund for people who cannot afford the fee.
