WHAT IS ICC?
The Institute for Cultural Communicators is a non-profit organization like no other!
We create high value for our participants by offering a variety of effective learning and mentoring experiences. These experiences help students gain confidence and competence in communication, collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking skills.
Our students are exposed to the ideas of Christians from other cultures around the globe, expanding their cultural mindset.
Students who work through the Student Leadership Pathway graduate from the program with an amazing set of proficiencies, skills that many employers find lacking in their younger employees, even college graduates.
ICC provides a high level of value at a great price-point for consumers.
The cost for these experiences is comparable to, even below, the cost of other opportunities that may not create the same level of value: sports, dance, private high- school education, or music lessons.
ICC equips youth to integrate lessons from both high-tech and high-touch learning environments for real- world application.

Statement of Faith
While we recognize that leadership and communication training is beneficial for everyone, there are a few distinctives that set our organization apart. In order to help us act as a community, united in mind, spirit, and purpose (Phil 2:2), we hold to a creed, a statement of the essential beliefs that we hold in common. This creed is not the sum total of everything each of us believes or practices. It does, however, delineate key features that bond us together as we work for united goals.
ICC representatives subscribe to the Nicene Creed, a statement of faith embraced by all stripes of Christ-followers: Protestants, Roman Catholics, and Eastern Orthodox believers. The Creed was written in 325 AD, which is before the Roman Catholic Church was formed and before the ancient writings of Scripture were canonized into the Bible as we know it today. We have selected the most common English translation of the Creed.
ICC is not a church. We are an organization of Christ followers joined by a common mission. We recognize that any words chosen to describe our faith have the potential to be both inclusive and exclusive. Our goal in selecting the Nicene Creed is to include fellow Christ followers.
