Third Culture Kids* (TCKs) are children who have spent a significant amount of time away from their parents’ home or passport country. Missionary Kids (MKs) are basically a more specific type of TCK, those whose parents serve as missionaries. With a growing globalized world, the number of TCKs has grown even though they’ve been around since ancient Bible times. In this Live Event, we explored TCKs in the Bible and lessons we can take from them that apply to modern TCKs.
At the Institute of World Mission, we have a passion to help Adventist missionaries grow as disciple-makers.
Our hearts go out to the many missionaries who become frustrated when traditional approaches (including proof-text Bible studies) fail them in oral, storytelling cultures.
We have prepared a webinar to help you combat this challenge.
Do we all read the Bible in the same way? Do we all glean the same insights from the Bible? To what extent does our culture impact what we see in the Scripture? What implications does this have to life and service of a missionary?
One of the five key goals for the Institute of World Mission is to help Adventist cross-cultural employees and missionaries think biblically about missions and its needs.
The three main points that we have prepared for you in this webinar are:
1. Get a fuller appreciation of what Shame and Honor cultures are.
2. Find out why this single factor plays a major role.
3. Start on a journey of serving effectively among people with Shame and Honor paradigm.
