Aurora College of Intercultural Studies offers the best missionary training possible. Our students are immersed in local ministry as they prepare for intercultural missions. After their first year of studies, our students spend a summer in the Philippines with Nehemiah Teams in unreached communities. After their second year, they spend two months in Indochina (Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, Myanmar, Cambodia and Vietnam.) They are trained to preach, to teach, and to share the Gospel in a variety of ways. Take a look at our curriculum to see the required courses for this program.
Are you a risk taker?
Discover the rewards of missionary life
Learn how to be effective as an intercultural missionary
There are many do's and don'ts when you enter into other cultures. Especially when discussing the sensitive topics of religion and faith. Learn how to share your faith with people from other major religions as well as tribal religions and cults.
Diverse Student Community
Our students come from a variety of regions, and speak a number of different dialects. While all instruction takes place in English, it is not the mother tongue for any of our students (to date.) Our desire is to begin training missionaries from other nations in the near future.
ACIS is not a degree factory! Our students become like family.
Not only do our students study together, they live together; eat together; serve together, and learn the value of working as a team. They graduate as more than just friends - they truly become family while living in Aurora.
Our Graduates are easily employed
Our graduates are working as international missionaries, with tribal people in the Philippines and as pastors. They are also in demand by Christian ministries throughout the Philippines. We provide vocational training through TESDA to help our graduates become tent-makers wherever the Lord leads them.
World Class Faculty who are also missionaries!
All of our full-time faculty have served as missionaries and have completed at least a master's degree from a reputable seminary or Bible school. As missionaries, they are able to share real world examples with our students.
