PREPARATION FOR INTERCULTURAL SERVICES AND MINISTRIES

East-West Center for Intercultural Studies(EWCIS) offers missionaries, cross-cultural workers, and church leaders the knowledge and tools they need for intercultural services and ministries. The program combines comprehensive biblical and theological resources with missiological discipline.

Students will understand the dynamic nature of the gospel, the missionary traits of the church, the deeply interwoven relationship between the gospel and culture, while manifesting a passion for reaching people to Christ in cross-cultural contexts.

Courses will be completed online or in virtual classes. Some courses can also be completed in a class room in Chiang Mai and at EWCIS’s regional campus. Studies at EWCIS may qualify for credit towards an MA degree in theological and intercultural studies from graduate schools associated with EWCIS.
