2021 CGO Mission Teams
Each summer, BJU students go out to the four corners of the globe with the best news the world could ever hear—the Gospel of Christ! Paul said he wasn't ashamed of the Gospel (Rom. 1:16) and we aren't either. From Cambodia to Tanzania, from Romania to Antigua, the Gospel is transforming lives and bringing sinful men into a right relationship with God through Jesus. The Holy Spirit is the power in all these efforts. We are just His instruments.
One way that students get these cross-cultural opportunities is through mission teams. In the summer of 2021, 6 mission teams and a number of city teams plan to go out from BJU, ministering across Asia, North and South America, and the Middle East. Come and be a part! For more info, see below, or email Mark Vowels, Director of the Center for Global Opportunities.
Reach Beyond Yourself.
We will serve alongside missionaries to teach English classes to young believers studying in seminary. We will also teach basic first aid (if any BJU students are on the trip who can teach basic first aid) since many of these seminary students will be ministering in and planting churches in remote jungle areas far from hospitals. We will also spend time with the seminary students to build relationships and encourage them in their studies. Students that are interested in teaching English and/or first aid are especially welcome; as well as those willing to work hard and complete various building projects.

City Teams USA
Small student-led teams aimed to build bridges with pastors, congregations and communities in a specific city context. These trips allow for pastors to share their vision and burdens for ministry in their city and open up the door for potential opportunities of service in the future as students connect their major with ministry significance in that context.
