Why not send some delegates from your church?
We are experiencing a large number of migrant workers, especially from Poland, and this course is to help local churches throughout Inverness become better equipped to minister in our increasingly multi-cultural society. Sending some delegates will mean that your church is better equipped.
Who will lead the sessions?
Dr Jamie Grant worked with the International Fellowship of Evangelical Students in Poland for 7 years, where he met his wife. He will be bringing specific teaching on 'Understanding Polish Culture'. Jamie is currently the Biblical Studies tutor at HTC.
Miss Sandra MacDonald is currently on a 3 year secondment to HTC from OMF. She has worked in Thailand for 23 years. She will be drawing on her wealth of experience to deliver sessions on 'Why bother with Cross Cultural Communication?' and 'Keys to Successful Cross Cultural Communication'.
Are you currently involved in a church based project working with Internationals?
There are many excellent ways in which churches are currently reaching out to Internationals in Inverness. We'd love to hear what you are doing (please contact Ian Ross on 01463 231 881). This course will provide an excellent means by which churches can learn from each other and perhaps even develop new ideas; towards the end of the day there will be a session on 'Ideas for Working With Internationals'.
Don't miss out! We look forward to receiving your booking and seeing you there!
