Student.Go is a student missions program of CBF that provides opportunities for college and graduate students to serve with our field personnel and ministry partners, as they live out the CBF Global Missions commitments—cultivating beloved community, bearing witness to Jesus Christ and seeking transformational development.
The deadline to apply for summer 2020 placement through Student.Go is February 15, 2020. The deadline for fall 2020 placement is April 15, 2020.
Whether it’s for a summer or a semester, students provide crucial assistance to the ministries of CBF field personnel and ministry partners. By serving with Student.Go, students also have the opportunity to discover their place within God’s mission to change the world. Through these experiences, students live out CBF Global Missions commitments within the contexts of global poverty, global migration and the global church. At CBF, we value God’s calling of both women and men to all types of ministry and seek to support both male and female students as they follow God’s will in their lives.
Undergraduate students completing their first year of college and at least 18 years of age, as well as graduate students of any age, may apply. In some cases, students may be able to earn class credit during their internship periods.
