Global Studies / Missions Abroad

Overview

Are you called to missions and missionary work abroad? As the world changes, it is essential for Christians to be able to relate to and understand different cultures through a broader global perspective. The Global Studies emphasis focuses on understanding cross-cultural ministry and is designed for those who desire to serve in a full-time intercultural capacity. Students will be required to study language, church planting, cultural anthropology, and missionary life while living on the mission field for one summer. Each student will also serve in an ethnic church similar to the culture in which they desire to minister.

At the same time, we believe that the foundation of any faithful ministry is a love for and an accurate understanding of Scripture. Because of this, all of our emphases stress the interpretation and application of biblical literature. Our students study the Bible in light of its original historical environment, equipping them to apply its message to today’s theological and cultural issues. For our Global Studies students, starting from a thoroughly biblical worldview will empower them to engage in their future ministries with discernment and zeal.
