Overcoming Challenges in A Multicultural World, Living out Your Uniqueness with Wisdom

Today’s society is full of different issues. How should Christians face the different challenges in this multicultural world while living out our uniqueness with wisdom? “Presence Life Planning Curriculum” (PLPC) is based upon Christian values, offers biblical examples and principles, explores real life cases, and uses interactive games and group discussions to help students reset life priorities, explore personal potential and calling, and learn wisdom and skills in dealing with others in a multicultural society.
