This module is part of "The Certificate of Mission Practice" (CMP), which is a Trinity Theological College Certificate programme, supported by and in co-operation with Singapore Centre for Global Missions and the Diocese of Singapore.

Course Synopsis:  This course covers some practical issues in helping mission workers prepare for short to mid-term service in cross cultural settings overseas and to provide them with tools to navigate these selected critical issues. The issues cover a range of concerns from an understanding of missionary calling and commitment to missionary care; from missions partnerships to church relations; from financial support to crisis communications; and most importantly developing effective interpersonal skills to working cross-culturally.
