“Desire without knowledge is not good, and whoever makes haste with his feet misses his way.” Proverbs 19:2 (English Standard Version)
You may not know what you don’t know until you are engaging in cross-cultural missions. Whether you’re already involved in cross-cultural missions or wanting to start, we offer knowledge and can further develop your competencies and your missionary heart.
Workshops, Consulting, and Curriculum
Our workshops, consulting, and curriculum address your cross-cultural missional needs for short-term missions, diaspora missions, cross-cultural conflict, multi-cultural teams, and cross-cultural internships. You can expect to see our values of spiritual formation, integration, age-appropriate learning principles, and appropriate instructional strategies in all we offer.
How do you define short-term missions? We define it as nonvocational missionaries going on a mission trip for varying periods of time of two weeks or less, or up to one year. Training needs are different depending on the length of the mission.
The Need for Short-Term Missions Training
Short-term missionaries usually have limited periods of exposure with the people they intend to interact with, so they would benefit from training that helps them to critically reflect on their own culture, learn about the other culture, and develop intercultural competencies that will help them in multiple cultural interactions.
