Welcome!

Our program was developed by missionaries for missionaries. The missions thrust is the all encompassing factor in every course. It is our goal to work with you in preparing tools for cross-cultural ministry which will enable you to think through theological issues thoroughly and clearly under the authority of Scripture. The community of students in a class is a significant factor in the learning experience – most of our students have lived and worked in cross-cultural settings and real life case studies presented either in class or in papers are essential.

It is a strenuous task to reflect on and work through years of cross- cultural experiences! Our courses are small (10-20 per class) and provide a safe environment for personal and professional exchange among people of various denominational backgrounds.

Our programs and flexible, modular structure allow you to focus on one area of study with plenty of options to choose from. We will gladly take time to talk through your situation and your needs and then recommend a personalized course of study for you. Combining courses at Korntal with Independent Learning Courses via our main campus in Columbia, South Carolina, allows you to earn a graduate degree without ever leaving your ministry in Europe.
