This course provides a biblical perspective on cross-cultural relationships. It is designed to help the student understand cultural differences and to identify biblically appropriate ways to respond to inequality and difference. The challenge is to become aware of personal cultural programming, to gain knowledge of a variety of minority groups, and to develop skills for effective ministry across cultural barriers to promote the unity of the body of Christ.
If you are enrolled in this course for three credits, the third credit will be earned by completing a collateral reading assignment (CRA) based on the textbook "A Beginner’s Guide to Crossing Cultures: Making Friends in a Multicultural World" by Patty Lane.
