What Students Have Said ...

"It has equipped me for going in to another culture."

"The training I received at Express, All Nations has been so relevant to what I experienced on mission: culture shock, transition, a multicultural team etc. It was a really valuable time of preparation, both with our heads (in classes) and our hearts (through friendship and time with God)."

"Full of practical advice, it has been helpful to think through my personal character and potential reactions to situations in mission."

What Is Express? 

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 three 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 if you intend to be serving abroad for more than one year.

  • An accredited, higher academic course.
