Explore Language & Culture
Encounter Culture is a practical course that takes you and your friends on a journey in understanding culture and our response to God.
Through five weekly sessions and four practical assignments you will:
- Learn how our cultural behaviour is driven by our values and beliefs.
- Consider what is real beyond the physical realm and how this impacts our lives.
- Be equipped to enable others to encounter God from their own worldview.
Explore Language introduces you to the elements that strengthen cross-cultural missions and gives you the opportunity to assess your ability to communicate in another language and culture.
Over the five day course, you will have hands-on experience, learning a new language, looking at its sounds and structures as well as the people’s culture.
Presenters involved in Bible translation, literacy and Scripture Use will share from their experience and give a glimpse into what it means to engage people with the message of Christ in ways they can truly understand.
