Cross-Cultural Living and Ministry Course
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 and weekly video conferences 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.
While we can schedule the start date and the course length to meet your individual needs, we also have pre-planned starting dates available throughout the year. Most learners take these courses over the span of six weeks. See our Culture and Ministry Registration Page for this year's pre-planned course dates.

"Now, having lived in Mexico for 6 years and taking this course how 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."
