Are you a Christian interested in spreading the Word of God around the world through intercultural studies? Our Bachelor of Arts in Intercultural Studies program at Global University is designed for ministry across various cultures.
We want to prepare our Intercultural Studies students to interpret the Bible correctly, demonstrate a working knowledge of the history and application of Christian theology, and conduct programs in local churches that will facilitate the ongoing vitality of the Christian faith among congregations with a diverse membership.
If you’re wondering if this may be a part of your unique calling, read on as we discuss three signs our Intercultural Studies program might be for you.
You’re Passionate About Evangelism
Do you feel called to share the Gospel with people worldwide who have not had the opportunity to learn about Christ? Despite Christianity being the largest religion globally, there are still countries, like China and India, where only a tiny percentage of people are Christian.
Missionaries play a crucial role in spreading Christianity worldwide, and our Intercultural Studies program will give you a solid foundation for preaching and teaching the Gospel within diverse communities.
In Matthew 28:19, Jesus says:
“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
You Love to Travel
A bachelor’s degree in Intercultural Studies is an excellent fit for Christian students who love to travel. Our courses will prepare you to confidently seek opportunities for mission work worldwide, teaching people the Gospel and bringing them closer to Christ.
Through connections with mentors and other students, you can plan a path of exciting ministry anywhere on the globe!
You Enjoy Learning About Other Cultures
The primary focus of our Intercultural Studies program is to teach students how to engage with diverse cultures in a well-informed, non-judgemental way, so they can successfully build trusting relationships. Offering courses such as Introduction to Islam and Christianity in a Muslim Context, we enable students to meet people where they are and introduce them to the Gospel in a way that feels comfortable for them.
It’s important to note that you don’t have to travel the world to experience diverse cultures–any community or church congregation will include people from many different ethnic backgrounds and walks of life.
