MYS- CoTS Department of Missiology

Missiology is an academic discipline with unique and multidisciplinary natures which primarily studies about God’s mission (missio Dei). As a unique academic discipline, Missiology must give particular attention to the origin of the mission (that is God Himself) and should be able to propose specific methods corresponding to different contexts so that the church can properly carry out the missions that God entrusted to her (John 20:21–23). In this regard, Missiology is a discipline that deals with the study of theories and practices related to how the Word (God’s) is proclaimed in the world (cosmos).

Missiology as a multidisciplinary subject also contends that all theological courses must prove that their content is missional and that they must share in its passion for promoting the missio Dei. At the same time to formulate its theology (Theology of Mission) and its approach to diverse contexts (Mission Strategy) Missiology utilizes almost all the resources from other theological courses and some social science areas as well. In doing so, Missiology presents the biblical foundations of missions, the theology of missions, and the history of missions, along with specific subject matters with different titles that align with the basic categories under the discipline, and which serve to accomplish its main objective.
