1. If you do not have a Mentor, line up one immediately and contact the SMin office. If she/he has not already done so, they should make arrangements for the mentor training session with the SMin office. 2. Work with your Mentor to select a cross-cultural missions ministry placement.

Please notify the Facilitator ahead of time if you will not be able to complete an assignment by the designated date. 8. Case studies are to be prepared as described in the SMin Manual prescribes. The presenter of a case study will provide the professor and all classmates with copies of his/her case study one week prior to the session in which the discussion is scheduled. 9. The only reading required for this class are: the case studies,
