Reaching Our Generations, Releasing Into The Nations!
Billions who do not know Jesus Christ, live within a short plane ride of Hong Kong. The Great Commission requires that we take seriously God's challenge to reach them with the Gospel. The School of Global Community Service aims to train men and women to effectively minister cross culturally to these people.
At ICA, we recognise that some are called to long-term cross cultural ministry, some want to include a mission's component in a ministry degree, while others want to better prepare themselves for short-term Global Community Service Teams. Our courses cater for each category. A crucial element of the School of Global Community Service is the opportunity to network with seasoned professionals, to have regular cross cultural ministry and to be supervised in a practical setting.
