Language & Culture: It’s Importance and Our Response
God made himself known to us in the person of Jesus Christ in ways that make sense to us, in a language we can understand. He relates to us personally on the deepest levels.

In this workshop you will learn why language and culture is vital to foreign missionary work and receive practical advice on how to approach such a grand task for the glory of God.
