Cross-Cultural Encounters

Train your team to have sensitive cross-cultural encounters.
This is Session 3 of the Round Trip video curriculum, which tells the story of two short-term mission trips, one sent from North Carolina and one sent from Kenya. The experiences of these short-term teams can help other churches prepare their own short-term missions trips.

This session can help you: reflect on a Christian model for crossing cultures; consider the strengths and weaknesses both of your culture and the culture you're visiting; and commit to a few concrete strategies for relating to the people you will serve.
