“Before that conflict, when we were young, I think every Muslim could visit any family of any religion. We had many Muslim friends when we were young, but in this age, we are not even allowed to visit their homes.”
The Asia Gateway Missional Leadership Residential Programme for 2017 has been set for June 3 to 30. The intensive four-week programme will focus on training of trainers, and church and mission leaders.
Students will benefit from the multicultural community living and learning from a multicultural team of mission specialists and mentors.
The courses will include:
- Crucial Issues in Asian Mission and Leadership
- Mission of God in the Bible
- Gospel, Culture and Integral Mission
Asia Gateway has successfully launched its 2016 Residential Training, which is a key initiative of AsiaCMS to train and equip workers and leaders for cross-cultural mission.
The six-week training at Malaysia Theological Seminary in Seremban attracted 16 students from six countries – Malaysia, Nepal, Myanmar, Pakistan, Singapore and Turkey.
The programme, which runs from July 16 to Aug 26, combines lectures and field trips to give students the best of academic training and exposure in a multi-faith and multi-cultural environment.
