Welcome to The Missional College @ Missional University!

The Missional College provides training for those who desire to learn how to serve among the diverse ethnic, immigrant and international groups in their communities in culturally-appropriate ways. The Missional College offers cutting-edge training that is biblically-based, interculturally-focused, and missionally-driven in the evangelical Christian tradition. We provide training in a wide breadth of disciplines from diaspora studies to intercultural research to communication studies to the study of global religion.  

The Missional College has programs that lead to an Undergraduate Certificate in Intercultural Studies, an Associate of Intercultural Studies degree, a Bachelor of Intercultural Studies (completion) degree, and a Master of Intercultural Studies.  The intercultural studies at Missional University grow out of missiology, the study of the mission of God (missio dei) and the involvement of the people of God.  We desire to see every graduate become equipped to join God’s mission by crossing cultural and religious barriers to share the gospel of Jesus Christ.  God desires every believer to be a missionary in the community -- and The Missional College will equip you to do just that.
