All references must be scholarly references, very tough professor. Please see the attached instructions.

The mission of the Church is unchanging despite cultural influences. However, the form of ministry used by the Church is readily influenced by culture. In this assignment, you will analyze the interrelation of culture with the mission and form of the Church’s universal and local ministries.

Directions:
In an essay of 1,250 to 1,500 words, analyze the interrelation of culture with the mission and form of the Church’s universal and local ministries (parachurch or local church). Your essay should include the following:

1. An analysis of the mission of the local ministry and its goals relative to the unchanging mission of the Church, delivered by Jesus Christ at its inception. What are some core goals of the local ministry? Do these goals align with the unchanging mission of the Church?

2. A critique of the form of the local ministry relative to its target culture. What are some key expressions of the local ministry? Are these expressions relevant to the target culture? Why and how so?

3. An analysis of the encroachment of culture on the Church and on the local ministry. Describe where the ministry and mission of the Church may have become unclear or distorted, “conformed to this world,” (Rom 12:2) as a result of syncretism. What are some pressures from the dominant culture to which the Church has conformed? How can the Church correct the resulting distortion of its message and ministry?
