Overview

The purpose of the Elementary Education, Missions Emphasis program is the same as Elementary Education, but in addition, it prepares teachers for a mission field context (e.g. a national missions school, a school for missionary children, or a foreign field home school). The program maintains the biblical studies, general education, professional studies, and elementary education core, but also includes courses in missions.
