Crossing Cultures Digitally with CCTI

One of EAST CCTI (Cross-Cultural Team Internship) teams this year crossed borders digitally to work with ministry partners in Cambodia to conduct sessions of outreach and equipping to communities of young people. The sessions covered leadership education, life skills, bible study and music as topics of interest for young people.

CCTI ministry is typically cross-cultural as teams will be ministering to people groups of different languages and cultures. In addition, teamwork within CCTI teams is also cross-cultural because these teams are typically made up of students from different nations.
