What is express

express residential is a short, dynamic course that can be accessed by coming to the All Nations campus for 5 days. The course aims to lay a foundation for the understanding and practice of cross-cultural missions in any context, home or abroad.

The course topics are built around 3 key questions:

  1. What is mission?
  2. Why get involved in cross-cultural mission?
  3. How can I work well with those from other cultural backgrounds?

There are also four cross-cutting themes that run throughout the course to help focus the learning. These are:

  1. Biblical Foundations
  2. Cultural Awareness
  3. People Skills, and
  4. Practical Issues.

What express is not...

  • A substitute for in-depth training for longer term mission service.
  • An accredited, academic course.

What are the entry criteria?

There are no prior academic requirements for express. Full benefit will come to those with good conversational English. An indication of the advisable level of English would be an IELTS score of 4.5 in Listening and Comprehension and 4.0 in Reading and Writing. However, the college retains the right to refuse an application if it is not satisfied with the candidate’s ability to communicate in the English language.

What qualifications will I get?

The All Nations express certificate.

How is the course delivered?

    The course is delivered through interactive workshop style sessions, presentations, case studies, and group activities.
