Description: The major challenge for multicultural interaction is recognizing cultural misunderstandings in order to better reflect biblical truth. Cultural misunderstandings affect every aspect of mission life and work. Ministry workers often mistake their way of doing things as Biblical rather than cultural and therefore they are reluctant to make changes. This session will introduce the reasons why people do things differently and is part of a Cultural Self Discovery workshop that enables ministry workers to identify their own culture in order to apply Biblical principles to further God’s kingdom. The workshop is based on the book “Biblical Multicultural Teams: Applying Biblical Truth to Cultural Differences” 2011. The primary audience for this workshop is missionary trainers, mobilizers, and field leaders.
