Cross-Cultural Living and Ministry Course

  • Are you moving to a new country or culture or serving cross-culturally within your own country?
  • Are you mystified by cultural differences and want to know more?
  • Are you seeking ways to share the hope of Christ with your international friends?

Cross-Cultural Living and Ministry is an online course designed to assist Christians in better understanding, communicating, and serving in cross-cultural settings. This 15-session course includes online content as well as personal interaction with a culture helper from a specific host culture. These sessions are accompanied by weekly one-on-one video calls with an instructor. The course culminates with the learner creating a culture profile of their host culture as well as a culture learning plan to use in the future.

"Now, having lived in Mexico for 6 years and taking this course...I see things in a whole new light. There are so many cultural aspects to life here that we observe, experience, and continue to figure out. This course is shedding a big light on it all."
