The Continuing Missionary Education program seeks to educate, equip, empower, and encourage innovation in reaching our globe with the whole Gospel while allowing appointed personnel to remain committed to their mission context.
The program targets those progressing through the various levels of short-term and long-term missions appointment.
Our initial approach to CME is to make courses/books available as required reading with the opportunity to complete assignments: study questions, academic papers, and other projects. All assignments and projects will be applicable to the student and the cross-cultural environment where he/she ministers or seeks to minister.
2 CME courses are required to upgrade each level of appointment: AIM->AMP, AMP->Intermediate, Intermediate->Career. These courses can be completed through the CME program or comped from related courses on a Bible College transcript.
For further information on the program, download the CME Overview document.
