“For me it wasn’t a case of standing in my own culture to try and reach out to others. It was a case of knowing that I needed to immerse myself in their culture. So I’ve never felt I’ve really worked cross culturally I felt more sort of multiculturally really and I think that’s helped. And when I look up where the churches are at that I think there are not enough people that manage to do that.”

  • How to lead cross-culturally and multi-cuturally
