The School of Missions

The School of Missions is a theological training program organized by CNEC, catered for lay pastors and church leaders in the mission fields. There are two courses in this program. Diploma in Christian Ministry serves as foundational training for students who are considering formal theological education in the near future. Certificate in Ministry Leadership equips students with the competencies necessary to serve as effective leaders in churches, Christian organizations and other contexts.

1). If you have a formal theological training from an institution accredited by the local or regional accrediting agency, you can share your specialized field of knowledge by teaching in the School of Missions.

2). If you have some basic theological training and know a foreign language such as Lao, Thai or Vietnamese, you can contribute your skills in translation work.

3). If you share our vision of training mission workers, lay pastors and church leaders to evangelize to their own unreached communities, you can contribute financially.
