ARILAC is a research and integral learning community that trains individuals to impact their communities by living out with a holistic and gospel-oriented christian worldview. In the past, ARILAC focused its efforts on providing a formalised M.A. degree in mother-tongue bible translation and Scriptural engagement. However, as globalisation accelerates across the world increasing the number of refugees, diaspora, and varying religions, the need for adaptable, informal training to meet these changes has become striking. It was inevitable that ARILAC had to change in order to meet these needs.

After consulting with professionals to seek a way to meet these new emerging needs, ARILAC used the data it has accumulated over the years about its personnel and resources to implement both formal and non-formal training programs. ARILAC’s formalised training program partners with Handong Global University’s Graduate School of Global Development and Entrepreneurship to provide an academic Master’s program for christiancommunity development. Global Equip 7, our informal training initiative, focuses on equipping refugees and diaspora groups all over the world.

ARILAC aspires to continue contributing to world missions while operating an integral learning community by actively partnering and networking with churches, groups, and institutions domestically and internationally.

1. Flexibility: 

Full personality formation and training of ministers through non-formal education. Pursuing a way to fill and complement weaknesses and loopholes in institutional education.

2. Collaboration:

Collaboration between locals and migrants is important because they are missioned elsewhere through the unprecedented global diaspora phenomenon. Particularly, the elimination of asymmetrical relations is a priority task of ministry.

3. Relevancy:

Establish appropriate and useful courses for the needs of the field.

4. Inter-clusion:

As the multicultural environment accelerates, the two-way learning method for culturally, religiously, and ethnically mutual understanding is pursued.

5. Transparency:

seeking an open learning community for all who need growth.

6. Integrity:

Growth and expansion of the kingdom of God (whole gospel: proclamation of the gospel and demonstration of the gospel), seeking all possibilities to achieve it.

7. Reciprocity:

seeking a global community that grows all the participants into a measurement of the growth of Christ.
