Question about Missionary Training for missionaries:
"I’m a teenager. Are there any specific classes that would be helpful to take in high school for getting into missions after school?"
Second, as a junior or senior in high school, take the Perspectives on the Perspectives on the World Christian Movement course for college credit. This is available one night a week, usually in the spring. My son did this as high school senior and a few years later, my daughter as well.
Most of all, I encourage you to talk and pray with your youth pastor about all of this.
Make friends at school who are from outside the USA, or who come from immigrant families. Ask gentle questions about life and how they see it. Rather than working to make them more American, see if you can understand their home culture.
Take any school course that exposes you to the world outside your own country: international relations, international business, world history and geography. Be knowledgeable. And read, read, read biographies and books by believers who have lived in other countries.
