Christ, Culture and Mission in Appalachia, Winter 2012
Beginning in the foothills of Appalachia, class participants visit family farms before traveling to the coalfields of southeastern Kentucky. The purpose of the travel seminar is to immerse students in the realities of Appalachia in order that they may encounter the mission of God in the culture and experiences of the people. The class will include worship, theological and cultural analysis, reading, and reflection. We end our visit on the beautiful campus of Pine Mountain Settlement School. This is a 17-day immersion course with a final integrative paper. Sponsored by Columbia Theological Seminary. Contact Border-Crossing Immersion Director Brita Gill-Austern.
For more information and applications, see the Border-Crossing Immersion Handbook.
