“Carey on the Road” is the Carey Institute’s initiative to provide theological education to the whole people of God, within the local church context.  Equipping God’s People to engage with those in our world.

Our church based program is a unique opportunity that allows for a group of students from a cluster of churches, to study theology together without leaving home.

The Carey Institute is offering a ten-course undergraduate Certificate in Ministry (CMin) in Calgary, beginning in October 2014. These courses may also be taken at the Diploma in Ministry (graduate) level.  The courses are practical, contextual and affordable. They are intended for men and women, new Christians, weary Christians, urban, rural, singles, couples, immigrants, employed, under-employed — everyone who wants to follow Jesus.


Course: Who are these People? Learning to Talk to Strangers

This course will seek to have students: become attuned to their own and to others’ values, beliefs, and assumptions about the world; understand how communication works between people from different cultures; understand the nature of the Gospel; and apply what they have learned about worldview and culture, communication, and the Gospel through simulations, class activities, and interactions with people from other cultures.
