This course has grown out of a desire to develop a growing team of short-term workers that will be equipped to enter a cross-cultural arena and effectively provide support to ongoing ministry projects or teams.  The purpose of this course is to provide foundational training to believers who desire to be involved in short-term ministry projects.
