Do I really need missionary training?

Whether you are a seasoned traveller or haven’t yet boarded your first plane, training can benefit your ministry in many ways — culturally, relationally, and spiritually. At CIT, discover aspects of your own worldview that you may not be aware of and receive the training you need to help your ministry and family thrive through all your transitions across cultures.

“My husband and I came to CIT because we 'had' to. Before CIT we had received some training, but none of it compared to this. I think all people moving overseas NEED to attend CIT! We will never be the same after our time here.”
