Developing Intercultural Competency for Ministry / Cross-Cultural Communication

Developing Intercultural Competency for Ministry / Cross-Cultural Communication   [MISS 0688 / CHRI 3633]

  Course Dates: Monday June 23, 2014 to Friday June 27, 2014
  Faculty: Robert Cousins
Course Description

God’s people are called to participate in God’s mission of blessing the nations of this world. With the movement of peoples, cities like Toronto have become multicultural centres where the nations are gathered in close geographical proximity.  If we are going to engage in missional ministry, in Toronto and beyond, it will mean having to cross cultural boundaries to build trusting relationships.

This course seeks to develop intercultural competencies for Christian leaders. Students will learn how to develop greater cultural self-awareness, knowledge and skills, enabling them to serve more effectively in  intercultural settings  in North America or around the world.

This course is co-taught by Robert Cousins and Jonathan Kim.

*Note: MISS 688 is a required course for Global Mission and Intercultural Studies majors at the Seminary. The title of this course has been changed from "Intercultural Communication" to "Developing Intercultural Competency for Ministry."
