Why Cross-cultural Missions and Islamic Studies?

Do you have a passion for telling others about Christ and engaging people of different cultures and world-views here at home or overseas?
Do you have a heart for mission?

Choosing the Intercultural Ministries Stream will equip you with the biblical knowledge, practical skills, personal preparation and missiological thinking to engage effectively in cross-cultural ministry and global mission. The Islamic Studies sub-stream, offered through MST’s unique Centre for the Study of Islam and Other Faiths, will equip you with theological, historical and cultural understanding to interact confidently with Muslim people wherever God has placed you.
