The purpose of the Intercultural Ministry major is to prepare students with the skills and attitudes to minister in a wide variety of cross- cultural contexts in the United States or abroad. Through academic training and internship experiences, students will learn healthy ministry models, emphasizing contextualization, sustainability, and empowerment of local church leadership.
Upon completion of the Intercultural Ministry Major, the student will understand the historical unfolding of God’s global mission and be able to evaluate the methods and means His people have used to advance it.
Students will gain the skills necessary to face the challenges of cross-cultural work, build healthy relationships, and do effective ministry in intercultural environments. They will learn how to utilize communication and organizational skills to educate believers aboutthe Great Commission and mobilize them to prayer, financial support,and personal involvement.
Students will discover where their unique gifts and passions can best serve the body of Christ in the next stage of life and learn how to devise ministry strategies that equip local believers to lead and reproduce biblically faithful and culturally relevant congregations.
