Honor-Shame Curriculum

Journey of Discovery in Honor, Shame, and the Gospel

Would you and your team like to better contextualize the gospel in a way that is biblically faithful and culturally relevant?

You can join Werner Mischke in a convenient, webinar-based missional learning journey about “Honor, Shame and the Gospel”.

Curriculum design for a rich missional learning journey

  • Subject matter expert and author-trainer Werner Mischke will lead you to deeper understanding about “Honor, Shame, and the Gospel”—for the glory of God and the honor of all peoples.
  • Curriculum design based on adult learning theory; four types of learning tasks—1) inductive, 2) input, 3) implementation, 4) integration
  • Primary text is Werner’s book, The Global Gospel
  • The class and conferencing software provides ‘breakout rooms’—allowing for small group discussion with workers from same agency but different region
  • Curriculum will amplify use of ‘story’ to be in balance with propositional truth
  • Step-by-step; not too much in a single session; will try to keep it 
simple but not simplistic

Werner has a long-term special relationship with Mission ONE’s partner in the Middle East—where Arab nationals are building a network of house churches through holistic ministry among various Muslim peoples. Werner’s experiences there have led him into a passionate pursuit of understanding the pivotal cultural value of honor and shame in Scripture and the cultures of the Majority World.
