Working with Hindus and Buddhists

Reaching Hindu and Buddhist people for our Lord Jesus Christ.

A personally tutored correspondence course offered by the Missionary Training Service

In order to reach Hindus and Buddhists, we need to understand them as well as grasp the essentials of the Gospel which are transferable to all cultures. The course involves prayer for and evangelism of a Hindu or Buddhist group locally so that with God’s help you become effective as a cross-cultural evangelist.
