Dr. Olsen
"The Intercultural Studies program is designed to help Christians understand different cultures – how they think, act and view the world – so that ultimately the gospel can be shared cross-culturally, here in the U.S. and across the globe. In the city of Mobile alone, there are over 40 different international cultures present, which means that God has brought the mission field to us, presenting many opportunities right here on our own doorstep!”
