What Topics Are Covered?
1. Culture & Worldview:
Learn how to interact with those who are different than you with sensitivity and how to understand culture with thoughtful intelligence.
Explore the question “What is poverty?” within a Biblical context and how to relate with those from different socio-economic backgrounds.
3. Story & Communication:
Understand how to share your story in a way that leads others to the Gospel and how to communicate in a cross-cultural setting with maximum effectiveness.
4. Helping without Harming:
Learn the principles for how to do missions well and wrestle with the common ways that those with good intentions can unintentionally cause harm.
5. Global Poverty Simulation:
As a team, step into the shoes of a family living in economic poverty and discover the difficult situations families in the Majority World face on a daily basis. This simulation will help you develop an understanding of global poverty, as well as empathy for those who live on less than $2 a day.
In-depth missions training prepares teams to serve in effective and culturally relevant ways, both on a short-term mission trip and in their everyday lives.
Without adequate training, teams can unintentionally cause harm to the community they’re serving. Beyond their trip, untrained participants are less likely to experience long-term change in their lives.
The question is… can you afford to not train before your missions experience?
