Kontaktmission Cross-Cultural Certificate

Fully Accredited Cross-Cultural ministry certificate designed by Kontaktmission for doing Biblically sound practical discipleship in Europe and beyond.

Kontaktmission is committed to planting churches and making disciples in Europe, the least Christian continent.

Kontaktmission was established as a purely European mission agency over 40 years ago, and is now sending mission servants from all over the world, including from the United States and Canada. Our heart and our missions ethos is still firmly rooted in and focused on Europe, which is home to a remarkably complex religious and philosophical-ideological battleground. For ministry in Europe, alongside believing, educated, sophisticated Europeans, it is of paramount importance to have a solid foundation in Scripture and in sound theology. This Kontaktmission-BibleMesh program is designed specifically to provide that right theological basis, which is necessary for the best kind of effective ministry in the complex contexts of Europe, and beyond.
