Elective Fee: $110

What is the Cultural Encounter Elective?

You'll learn the basics of engaging with other cultures and religions, seek the heart of God for the nations He's made, examine the call to global missions that's woven throughout the whole Bible, and how to contextualize the Gospel to be able to share it anywhere. We'll unpack all of that with one another over some tasty meals and snacks. You'll also learn how hospitality opens doors for the gospel and explore cross-cultural cuisine as we minister overseas.

Discover just how far God's love can reach, how delightful and diverse creation is, and your personal role to play.
