The School of Intercultural Studies (SIS) seeks to train and equip mission leaders in context to evaluate critically and respond effectively to global realities of the twenty-first century. The primary purpose of SIS Global Leadership is to enable leaders to maximize their leadership potential by integrating missiological theory into missional praxis. Students in these programs will interact with a broad base of core missiological literature in order to engage the relevant issues in their ministry contexts. As a result, leaders are able to have direct and practical impact on the life and ministry of their organizations.
