Day 9: Missional Christmas

Nine Experiences Learning

Along with teaching in the synagogues, Jesus created learning experiences for his followers. He taught spiritual truths from everyday life using parables, shocking statements to gain attention, catchy sayings and word plays, poignant questions, and repetition. He taught by example and by practical assignments for his followers with reports on their application.

Jesus was a master of indirect communication thereby causing those who heard his teaching to ponder the significance of his sayings. He used a dialogical method that caused his disciples to reflect on their own experiences in order to deepen their learnings.

“On the ninth day of Christmas, my Lord & Savior sent me:
Nine Experiences Learning,
Eight Schools Inspiring,
Seven Continents Teaching,
Six Missional Careers,
Five Missional Answers,
Four Educational Levels,
Three Intercultural Options,
Two Missional Opportunities,
and a Christian on a Unique Mission”

At Missional University every degree program includes components of experiential learning such as observerships, practicums, field instruction, internships, mentorships, capstone, projects & portfolios, and research & thesis writing. In these learning experiences, students experience observation practice, participant observation, action learning, action research, and missional clerkships.
