Intercultural Missions --Westminster Worldwide
The Intercultural Missions Department known as Westminster Worldwide is recognizing its role and adjusting its focus in the light of the changing world scene with its accelerating movement of nations and people groups. Intercultural communication is now really a 'front-door' approach as we awaken to the mission field all around us in Toronto, Canada, as well as overseas (Acts 17:26-27).
