About Missionary Training Colleges
WEC understands the importance of proper training and preparation for cross-cultural mission. Hence, we have several colleges around the world, which specialise in training Christians for mission.
Teaching includes input on theology and biblical interpretation, along with mentoring, and practical guidance on evangelism, outreach and ministry skills. Hands-on experience of outreach is also a core component of this training, enabling students to put the theory into practice.
With colleges in Brazil, the Netherlands, Australia, New Zealand and Mexico, and hopefully one in East Africa soon, residential training is within reach for any aspiring missionary.
Some of these colleges also offer short online modules.

The Netherlands is a country in Western Europe with a population of 17 million.
The European portion of the Netherlands consists of twelve provinces and borders Germany to the east, Belgium to the south, and the North Sea to the northwest, sharing maritime borders in the North Sea with Belgium, the United Kingdom, and Germany.
The five largest cities in the Netherlands are Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague, Utrecht and Eindhoven. Amsterdam is the country's capital, while The Hague holds the seat of the States General and cabinet. The Port of Rotterdam is the largest port in Europe and the world's largest outside East Asia.
Netherlands literally means lower countries, influenced by its low land and flat geography, with only about 50% of its land exceeding one metre above sea level.
With a population density of 414 people per km2 –– the Netherlands is classified as a very densely populated country. Only Bangladesh, South Korea, and Taiwan have both a larger population and higher population density.
Nevertheless, the Netherlands is the world's second-largest exporter of food and agricultural products, after the United States. This is partly due to the fertility of the soil and the mild climate as well as its highly developed intensive agriculture.

In cooperation with local churches, WEC Netherlands wants to equip and send workers among the unreached, to make followers of Jesus, and to plant missional churches.
WEC runs a cross-cultural training college in Beugen called Cornerstone where students from many countries come to study and prepare for missionary service.
WECers are also reaching out to immigrant communities within the Netherlands, in cities like Rotterdam.
