Effective Leadership in a culturally complex world requires a combination of Cultural Intelligence and cross-cultural experience. The Perkins Global Theological Education Program prepares Christian leaders for culturally complex churches and communities. Through seminars and significant immersion experiences in other cultures we prepare our students for lifelong growth in cultural intelligence and cross-cultural competence. Students gain firsthand experience in building intercultural relationships, resolving cultural conflicts, and guiding intercultural ventures.

The GTE Program also makes cultural immersion experiences and other resources available to teachers, facilitators, and lay leaders of short-term mission. Using these resources, short-term mission teams complement their practical preparations with reflection on the theology and spirituality of mission toward the goals of both personal growth and more faithful partnerships with others.
