FIS (Foundations of Intercultural Studies)-Provence, France
March 20 - December 18
The Foundations for Intercultural Studies course aims to build pioneers who will be on the field long term. This training will allow you to integrate and put into practice different topics such as:
Knowing and understanding Islam and Muslims
The exchange and adaptation of new cultures and reconciliation in those cultures
Living overseas as an expatriate.
Building bridges between Christians and Muslims.
Starting a business for missions.
How to communicate and build relationships with supporters and churches.
Biblical Foundations in Missions.
Project Planning and teamwork.
Principles for the multiplication of disciples.
And so much more!
You will learn with experienced teachers how to grow in the field and have the opportunity to put into practice what you learn directly in Southern Europe or the North African region. Southern Europe is full of large numbers of people with immigrant background, specifically from North Africa but also different nations around the globe; and North Africa is 99% Muslims. The harvest is so plentiful!
The school is oriented towards North Africa, but will equip you for involvement as a whole in the wider Muslim world.
This is a multi-site course, which means that people will join the base they feel called to, but the course will be given on different sites simultaneously on an “on-line” teaching.
