We are grateful for the many ministry, organization, and individual partners around the world who join us in helping Christians be equipped for cross-cultural ministry!

Take a course or workshop, receive language coaching, get consultations for your team and organization, refer us to your friends in ministry, donate financially to ICCT, and pray with us.

What does ICCT have to offer?

We have several different courses for language learners at every stage (beginners to advanced). With a combination of language learning techniques, pronunciation help, and language helper guidance, we prepare you to reach your language learning goals. All of our courses are completely online and can be made to accommodate your schedule and needs. 

ICCT is the primary organization that provides training for language coaches in Christian ministries and non-profits. If you are in the position of guiding other people in their language and culture learning, our Foundations, Listen Up & Speak Out, and Assessment courses are perfect for you! All courses are completely online and offered several times a year.

ICCT has a variety of courses and workshops for ESL teachers suited for both community volunteers, tutoring businesses, and veteran teachers. We offer 8-hour, 10-hour, and 30-hour TESOL workshops and courses that provide a completion certificate for proof of the professional training received through ICCT. Many courses may be optionally taken for graduate credit. Our training is offered online through virtual participation, though in-person options may also be available.

For those living, working, and serving in another culture, ICCT offers a Cross-Cultural Living and Ministry course, which will empower you to communicate and serve more effectively in your community. This course is fully online with flexible scheduling and is discounted if taken alongside a second language acquisition course.
