Certificate in Intercultural Studies

The Cornerstone one year programme also called the certificate programme, provides training for students who prepare for cross-cultural support ministries, short-term cross-cultural ministry and for those who for other reasons have limited time for training.

The course majors on biblical and theological subjects, but includes also missiological and communication courses to develop basic skills in sharing the gospel cross-culturally. Included in the Cornerstone one year programme is a three week hands on cross-cultural mission experience (The cost for the cross-cultural mission experience is NOT included in the fees and will depend on the country you choose to go to).

Our certificate programme at Cornerstone Bible College is accredited by the ECTE. If you would like to apply for this one year programme, please click here.
