Exploring Mission

Exploring Mission is a course that will help you find your place in God’s global vision.

Exploring Mission recognises that you are already living, learning and working in intercultural contexts. It’s a lived experience.

We also recognise that our world is rapidly changing and therefore intercultural mission must keep pace. An outdated approach to global mission simply will not cut it!

Everybody has a role in God’s story...
