Experience C I T
CIT is a partnership of missional agencies, churches and organizations dedicated to training and equipping cross-cultural workers and their families for cross-cultural ministry.
Participants attend courses at CITʼs 28 acre campus located near the mountains of western North Carolina. The quiet campus provides the ideal environment to build cross-cultural awareness and skills in a community-based learning environment.

What others are saying…
If man’s chief end is to glorify God and to enjoy him for ever, then the Center for Intercultural Training joyfully exists to train, equip, and mobilize God’s servants to bring and be that message of hope, life, and joy to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people. I could not imagine an abundant and lasting service for Gods purposes for God’s people in the Nations without that equipping. Thank you CIT!–JP-India
“We greatly benefited from this excellent, holistic course. So appreciated the chance to tap into the experience and academic studies of well-seasoned missionaries who helped to prepare us to thrive on the field and avoid common cross-cultural pitfalls. Deeply enriching on both a personal and community level!” –JD, Africa
“If you think you are ready for the mission field, you aren’t; you need to be served by the experts at CIT. If you are going to work with, minister to, or live with anyone besides yourself whether on the field or not, you need CIT. I was reluctant to pay the small cost for CIT for fear of my stewardship. It is well worth the investment!” —BH,Central Asia
“ I was a bit grumpy about having to do CIT with all the demands on our time and how it might unsettle our kids. I also questioned its relevance due to the expense. In retrospect, I am so grateful to have been at CIT! I fell MUCH better equipped, humbled about how much I need to learn and delighted to see our kids thrive and grow. Thank you, CIT!!” JS, Africa
