FTCM concentrates on cross-cultural mission training, it is not a substitute for study in theology and Bible, which should be done by the prospective missionary elsewhere.

Thus, it includes development in three key areas namely; gaining fresh Biblical insights and ideas about God and His mission; developing mature
emotion, attitudes and godly character; and developing relationship skills across cultures. It is an essential foundational equipping for long-term missionary work in a cross-cultural context.

FTCM is a one-year certificate course that runs through September of one year to August of the next or from January to December. It comprises relevant mission-logical courses such as: Biblical Foundations of Mission;
History of Mission; Missionary Interpersonal Relationships; Cross-Cultural Communications (CCC); Demons, Witchcraft, and Spiritual Warfare; Principles of Language Acquisition, Missionary Approach to Islam, Christian Community Development (CCD), Ethnographic Research; Cultural Anthropology; etc.
It also includes a four-month Practicum. NEMI’s FTCM is a must-take for all prospective missionary candidates across the nations, and it is affiliated to the Bethany International University (BIU) Singapore.
