The Asia Gateway 2019 Missional Leadership Residential Programme is now accepting applications!

The Missional Leadership Residential Programme, held at the Seminari Theologi Malaysia in Seremban, is an advanced course designed to equip leaders and potential trainers in preparing new workers for ministry among Asian cultures – with a particular focus on engaging with Asian religions and worldviews.

This programme is also suitable for church and mission leaders who have not done formal cross-cultural training, especially in Asian contexts, or taken as an in-service training; it is also ideal as a refresher course for workers on home leave. All courses are taught by experienced lecturers, both East and West.

This residential programme combines high-quality coursework with practical field trips, set alongside personal reflection and mentoring. Only a few such courses are based in Asia. They provide opportunities for spiritual development through personal mentoring and intercultural community living.

The 2019 Missional Leadership Residential Programme will consist:

  • Lectures
  • Group discussions/reflection/feedback
  • Case studies
  • Research and assignments
  • Community Living
  • Personal mentoring and spiritual development
  • Practical learning trips


Programme Fee: RM 3,500 for 4 weeks of classes

Programme Date: Duration: June 1, 2019 (arrival date) to June 28, 2019.

Asia Gateway Training is an intensive programme that lays down a firm foundation in intercultural learning for missions, combining practical experience with theological reflection.
