In honor of world missionaries Bob and Hazel Hoskins, Southeastern University has announced that they will be launching the Bob and Hazel Hoskins School of Mission within the Barnett College of Ministry and Theology this fall. In partnership with OneHope, the Hoskins School of Mission aims to provide interdisciplinary degree programs with a combination of ministry and marketplace skills in order to equip students for effective organizational and entrepreneurial leadership.
Founded in 1987 by Bob Hoskins, OneHope is an international ministry that reaches children and youth across the globe through relevant gospel messages in the form of print, films and apps. Today, they have reached more than 1.7 billion children and youth and work in over 238 countries.
OneHope’s Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer Dr. Chad Causey will be chairing the school alongside Reverend Anthony Roberts, associate dean of Southeastern’s Barnett College of Ministry and Theology. “The vision of the School of Mission is to unite traditions that have been historically separate from each other. It’s crucial that we recognize that the future missional leader in the public, private or market sector has to be skilled in multiple disciplines. The school will be a center that develops programs that integrate and unite those complementary disciplines into innovative degrees that fully equip future leaders,” said Causey.
