The Doctor of Intercultural Studies Degree is a very good fit for students who desire to be prepared for positive and influential leadership, relationships of trust, and biblical ministry in intercultural contexts either in denominational or interdenominational structures.
Effective cross-cultural ministry requires the application of an advanced understanding of the relationship of theological studies to cross-cultural morality and ethics and cross-cultural conflict management.
