Important anointed teachings for all servants of God.

October 27, 2022

The course is design to extend the knowledge and skill of students in intercultural ministry principles and practical way to do it providing a foundation.

Jesus, kingdom, gospel in intercultural missions is lectured.

life and ministry of Jesus Christ by the four gospel narratives bringing understanding of cultural and historical environment of the day within its literary settings. Jesus ministers’ redemption from sin, sickness, redemption from demon possess this is trace back to the understanding of the kingship leading His people to the promise of God. getting to know the context of the internal narrative audience.

Interpretation, structure of the gospel accounts what the gospel is, historical birth of Jesus Christ.

Jesus and the fulfillment of the OT,

Jesus the breather of life, putting together, What the kingdom looks like, abstracting and applying principle and more are being thought.

I found this a great blessing especially we that are not privileged to have former education. Good course for bible schools. God bless axx all workers.

The Holy spirit is needed for everyone into intercultural ministry

October 27, 2022

The studies I have received here is of great blessing which will help me in rural mission. My prayer is that God will help me not to become reluctant, but to put it into practice. This is really what is needed for everyone in ministry whether home sending or one in the field, be it long term or short term. Practical tools are given.

I just like the indebt knowledge of the lecturers especially Ps IAN.

Intercultural ministries need good grounding, basic principles, of mission and cross-cultural communication. into people group and ethnicity. The Holy Spirit is daily is needed for help in missions in this stray world. This course is for one that have the heart for mission.

I am being enlightened understanding humanitarian mission, community transformation, people group and their settings, various difference type of missions. In intercultural mission one is in to bring change in the world.

Very grateful studying this course.

My Review / Testimonies

October 31, 2022

I will start by giving glory to God for making me a part of this course. The course is a wonderful one, it really exposes me to the nitty gritty of cross-culture and what it entails. It is a direct program from heaven to bless man on earth. God is really using APC Bible College to bless the believers. My prayer is that God will continue to sustain APC Bible College. I also want to appreciate our Lecturer, Kay, she is a wonderful woman, and she teaches with simplicity and enthusiasm. She has made Crossing cultures / Missionary work a must for me to explore. May God bless her in Jesus name, Amen. Thank you APC Bible College.
