course planning: what skills to work across cultures?

We are in the midst of reworking the Bachelor for Ministry here at Uniting College. Our goal is to

Develop effective leaders for a healthy, missional church.

So yesterday I was meeting with some leaders from a cross-cultural mission organisation. Together we were reflecting on migration patterns, and the influx of world to Australian shores. Take Sydney, which would be a city in decline if it wasn’t for overseas migration.

So, having just emerged from a planning meeting in regard to changes in the B.Min (which are pretty exciting IMHO) I decided to do some market research. I asked them:

what skills are needed in order to work across cultures here in Australia?

What would you say if I asked you that question?
