How does MATUL differ from other degrees? : 

How does MATUL differ from other degrees? An Entirely New Field: Urban Poor Movement Leadership A Leadership Degree Movement Leadership (evang/apostolic leadership centre) vs Management for NGO ‘s (diaconal centre) this is not an MBA Urban Poor Leadership (This is an urban degree) A Movement Leadership Degree vs a Development Degree Why? Theologically - Jesus came to train movement leaders (apostles). Deacons/managers were in support roles His style was holistic mission with a centrality of evangelism, not holism based on Western fundraising (cf. ValdirSteuernagals reflections at WEA on failure of holism in contrast with holistic mission) Urban Poor Leadership There is no formal training for these leaders globally

Core Theological Concepts Behind the Degree : 

Core Theological Concepts Behind the Degree The Kingdom of God as core theological framework Holistic church-planting as central vehicle for Kingdom development The spiritual is central to economic, social and justice Kingdom dimensions The Church, the Word, the Spirit are the Primary Agents of Transformation International Diaconates are to serve the advance of the incarnational church Story-telling Is the primary methodological process of doing theology among the poor (though at an MA level meshes with linear Western logic in the integration paper) Incarnational requires students to relocate to slums for large portions of the degree

With a base in the grassroots training in holistic churchplanting, in addition at an MA level… Development of Movement Leadership e.g. issues moving from leadership of 6 churches to 30, of small economic or development projects to wider scale processes Expansion of Theoretical Understandings e.g. Understanding City Systems or Structures of Advocacy Preparation of Cross-cultural Missionaries Our major goal is to create structures serving 5,000 leaders who will move 50,000 from the slums to the slums Expansion of Holistic Elements in Church Formation e.g How to get every elder established with a Kingdom economic theology and economic base Entrepreneurial Development
