This course is intended to be an introduction to understand rescue missions and similar ministries that serve the homeless and addicted and to develop the skills and attitudes needed to serve effectively.
This is an “onramp” freshman level course intended as a first course or early in their studies with City Vision. This course was originally designed to target graduates of rescue mission recovery programs and new interns/staff at rescue missions, but it could be helpful for others with a passion to serve the homeless and addicted in a Christian ministry.
This course requires the following:
- Weekly attendance at a live video conference with the instructor.
- Having a supervisor or mentor (see mentor qualifications & expectations)
Do not register for this course unless you can meet the above requirements.
CVC 103 Introduction to Rescue Missions and Ministry Serving the Homeless & Addicted is part 2 of a two part course series. Students are encouraged to take CVC 102 Introduction to Rescue Missions and Ministry Serving the Homeless & Addicted 1 before this course, but they can take them out of order if they prefer.
