Intercultural Assessment & Training

The TIM Centre provides unique  intercultural assessment, training and coaching for Christians engaged in local and global missions.  Part of this training is the Intercultural Development Inventory®(IDI): an assessment tool to help individuals and teams assess and reflect on where they are on their intercultural development journey. The IDI®, through its qualified administrators,  helps participants to evaluate where they are on a six stage intercultural development continuum. Training can also be tailored to meet the needs of each group.


An individual coaching plan assists participants to be intentional in developing intercultural awareness, knowledge and skills for effective ministry. One on one coaching is also available upon request.
