Christian Ministries - Missions

Jesus Christ gave us as Christians the Great Commission--to take the Gospel to all the nations. The Missions Track provides an initial equipping for students who sense a calling for cross-cultural missions.  The courses have a balanced mix of Biblical Studies, cross-cultural investigation and required experiences in a cross-cultural setting.
