Our students get a rare opportunity to live within another culture.
Twice each year, MTSO groups depart for faculty-led cross-cultural immersion trips of roughly two weeks. Recent destinations include South Africa, Cuba, India, Israel/Palestine and Korea.
This experience, which is available to all students and a requirement for those seeking a Master of Divinity degree, is not a mission trip. It’s an opportunity to truly experience, rather than attempt to impact, a culture different from one’s own.
