EAST Cross-Cultural Team Internship 2018

Four teams of EAST students traveled to multiple overseas locations as part of their Cross-Cultural Team Internship 2018 (CCTI).

The teams spent a semester in preparation seeking to apply contextualisation and cross-cultural principles in their planning and working with the overseas partnering church or agency. They also sought to do team building as part of their working together cohesively and in unity. Then during the end-of-year school break, they embarked on a three-week cross-cultural missions trip and came alongside their partners to meet the latter’s ministry needs.

Here is a short video from the CCTI team to India as an example:
