  • The Theology of Global and Experiential Learning (GEL) | Wheaton
    enables What does God s work in creation imply for global engagement We affirm that our work study ministry and play are rooted in the confidence that the earth is the Lord s and everything in it the world and all who live in it Ps 24 1 All humanity shares dignity and worth in bearing the image of God The world that the Creator loves is the world Christians are called to serve together as representatives of God s Kingdom in every sphere of society and every corner of the map John 3 16 Acts 1 8 A primary task for all Christians is making disciples of all nations Mt 28 19 20 Our diverse vocations provide suitable opportunity for sharing our faith and for loving both our immediate neighbors and distant peoples Doing so with godly wisdom and spiritual discernment calls Christians to the lifelong task of learning comprehensively from the experiences of the entire human family As stewards of the earth Gen 1 28 and new creations in Christ 2 Cor 5 17 we have a mandate to care for the creation itself which is God s handiwork Christian liberal arts education therefore should embody a global vision of learning shaped by explorations undertaken both inside and outside the classroom Such an education provides an excellent means for developing the range of understanding skills and virtues needed to engage the complexity of God s cosmos A Wheaton education aims to provide opportunities for in depth engagement with the world s diverse peoples and cultures through the full range of disciplines in biblical and theological studies the humanities social sciences and arts as well as the natural sciences Because we confess our faith in the Creator God faculty and students are called first to learn about and then to care about the whole of creation and its myriad life forms cultivating knowledge and experience pertaining to the many facets of our world Prov 1 1 7 What does the Lordship of Christ imply for global engagement Representing Christ is the privilege and calling of God s people We belong to a global church that serves the world s true King and only Savior Jesus Christ The fundamental basis for globalizing a Wheaton education is the universal Lordship of Christ He is the One through whom and for whom all things were created who reconciles a sinful world to God through his death and resurrection and who is the sole head of one body the people of God whom the Apostles Creed calls the catholic i e universal church Col 1 15 20 Following Christ necessarily means belonging to God s people and participating in his continued work throughout the world John 20 21 Matt 28 19 Early in the history of the Church God pushed the apostles beyond their cultural boundaries showing them that the Spirit of God transcended ethnic categories Acts 10 and 13 The New Testament presents the Church as developing into a multi ethnic movement
