Christ said, "Go and preach
A task can be performed well, but at the same time can be done even better if necessary knowledge and training is provided. We believe that it is important to first teach and then send missionaries to the corners of the world. This investment in education is worth the end result of a better quality outcome and more efficient work on the missions field. With this goal in mind, the practical missionary preparation course was created. Now, everyone is given the opportunity to learn practical methods of missionary work and utilize this course to accomplish set goals.
