Intercultural Studies


The Harvest is plentiful! We are privileged to live in a day when God is raising up thousands of Asian missionaries. Although the needs of Asia are great, God is greater! How thrilling to see God building His church, and multiplying laborers for the harvest. And how good of God to allow us to be a part of what He is doing.

However, if these missionaries are to survive and thrive in cross-cultural ministry, they must be well-trained. Our desire at IGSL is to build biblical thinkers for dynamic spiritual leadership, working in partnership with churches and missions agencies to produce workers for the harvest.

What is MATL-ICS? The Master of Arts in Transformational Leadership – Intercultural Studies is designed for students who desire to be trained for cross-cultural ministry. The goal of this two-year program is to equip students to minister effectively in other cultures.

In addition, MATL-ICS students take classes in the areas of Bible, Theology, Communication, Leadership and Spiritual Development. If you believe that God is leading you to serve Him cross-culturally, and you want to be prepared for that unique ministry, we want to help you. The first step is to begin the application process.
