The TIM Centre equips Christians not only for Short-Term Missions (STM), but also for a lifetime of intercultural ministry from their doorstep to the ends of the earth. STM trips create a direct encounter with different cultures.
We often limit STM to an overseas experience to sharing the Gospel. However, STM is not just about going two weeks overseas. It is also an opportunity for global discipleship. Intentional intercultural training for your STM experience will help you in developing the cultural self-awareness, knowledge and skills which are essential to navigating our multicultural context at home and abroad.
TIM Centre facilitators will tailor-make a training seminar for your STM team. Below are some of the core outcomes for STM training.
|Code of Best Practice||A biblical basis for STM|
|Building a support team||Cross-cultural perspectives|
|Developing an intercultural team||Building healthy global partnerships|
|Debriefing your STM experience||How to maximize your STM experience for ministry at home|
|Communicating the Gospel in different cultural contexts|
