At the same time, it seeks to integrate various facets of other disciplines, ranging from organizational management and human resource development to intercultural communication and community development. World Link is a vehicle for researching and disseminating new learning that will help missionary training institutions in the Third World prepare their students properly for the challenges of cross-cultural ministry.
