Designed to train leaders to train teams, our seminars are highly relational, informative, and interactive. CULTURELink works with mission organizations, churches, and humanitarian groups, equipping them with the “how-tos” of team development and preparing them for cross-cultural challenges.
“Help! We’re Going on a Short-Term Trip!” provides fifteen hours of instruction and may be taught over two to three days. Each participant receives a Team Leader’s Manual complete with lesson plans for training sessions, step-by-step guidelines for discipling team members, and directives for planning the logistics of a short-term mission trip. Participants also receive a Team Member’s Manual filled with a collection of devotions, articles, and worksheets that cover all aspects of being an effective cross-cultural servant. These parallel manuals pave the way for a cohesive, linear training experience.
Led by an experienced CULTURELink instructor, seminar participants are guided through ten training sessions that equip them to prepare their teams before, during, and after their cross-cultural trips. CULTURELink’s hands-on training allows team leaders the opportunity to experience being part of a team themselves prior to assuming their leadership roles.
Our seminars are recognized by Perspectives of the World Christian Movement and by numerous Bible colleges that offer college credit to seminar participants. CULTURELink has conducted more than 70 seminars, training over 2500 people, both stateside and abroad. Team leaders have been equipped for ministry with churches and organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, the North American Mission Board, Campus Crusade for Christ, Youth With A Mission, and Operation Mobilization.
