How do we answer questions from East Asians about faith and share the Bible in a culturally appropriate way?
What’s the training for? To help local Christians become more effective in reaching East Asians in their area by helping them to better understand the mindset and culture of their friends. Growth in any relationship takes time, but more so when you’re crossing cultures. If you’d like to be able to share your faith in a deeper way, then our training’s a must!
“The training day was the best of its kind that I have ever been to. I have been attended a fair number, having been working for Global Cafe for about seven years in either a voluntary or paid capacity.
The content was concise, extremely clear and pitched at just the right level. I could actually see the wood for the trees, which was a new and refreshing experience, as usually I find myself bogged down in the detail.” Attendee of a training day in Leeds.
What are some of the things you cover?
- How to befriend and welcome East Asians into your church.
- How to understand their mindset, culture, religion and worldview.
- How to evangelise East Asians.
- How to disciple, mentor and do Bible studies with East Asians.
- How to prepare someone who’s returning to East Asia as a Christian.
If you belong to one of the following, we’d love to offer you training:
- Christian Unions
Maybe you could get a group together in your area from all of the above? If you’re an East Asian you would also benefit. Come along and have a better understanding of the cross-cultural issues you’re living with in the UK.
