The international studies minor provides certification of a student’s global educational experience. Study abroad enables a person to deepen their understanding of the richness and diversity of the world’s cultures. Program options allow students to explore a variety of regions of the world through different academic disciplines. Prerequisite for the international studies minor: acceptance into a Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU) study-abroad program.
The ministry group we continue to work with is animistic [the religious belief that objects, places and creatures all possess a distinct spiritual essence], with a complex system of spirits whom they fear. We were reminded over and over again that spiritual warfare is real, and that prayer is truly essential to all efforts to share Christ no matter where we are. We also realized that God’s love is often shared via small loving encounters with individuals and the group. In miraculous ways they were able to see and feel God’s love shining through us as Jesus followers. Each one of us have had similar good news encounter opportunities in our lives.
