Global Servant Training Program

The Global Servant Training Program at Gordon College offers students the opportunity to join the Missio Dei in reaching people groups throughout the world with the Gospel.

Learn to Serve

This interdisciplinary vocational training program equips Gordon students to partner with mission organizations as linguists, teachers, engineers, computer experts, medical personnel, counselors, accountants, project managers or in virtually any other field. The common coursework is designed to develop basic linguistic competence, cultural awareness and interpersonal skills as well as language proficiency in preparation for service. 

Experiential Learning

The Global Servant Training Program features several experiential components to help students discern their specific area of vocation and affirm their calling. Participants will either study abroad for a semester in a non-English speaking country or complete an international internship with a missions organization.
