Cross-Cultural Engagement and Global Leadership

North Greenville University is committed to being a strategic partner in fulfilling the Great Commission given to us by our Lord Jesus Christ.  Through an integrated program of academic discipline, spiritual preparation, and hands-on field experience, North Greenville University students are being prepared to fill strategic roles in the great task of world evangelism.

Exciting opportunities in missions involvement are available to every student, regardless of his or her academic major or future career plans. Short-term mission teams (L.I.G.H.T. Teams) and field practicum experiences allow students to put their classroom training to work in "real world" environments among people groups and population segments from every region of the world, including North America.

Of particular excitement is the Craft/Hemphill Center for Missions, Evangelism, and Christian Worldview.  Among other functions, this center enables us to promote missions, provide missiological resources, prepare missionaries, and produce Great Commission Christians who have a global impact on the advancement of the gospel of Jesus Christ in the 21stcentury.

The Center also serves as a resource for missions research, a missions mobilizing and sending hub, and a regional training center for individuals and churches that sense God's call to cross-cultural ministry.

LIGHT Teams are made up of NGU students, faculty, and staff who sense the call of God to take the gospel of Jesus Christ to the nations.  These mission teams focus on sharing Christ through a variety of platforms and projects in both North American and international contexts.

An annual Global Missions Conference provides students with the opportunity to interact with missionaries serving on the front-lines of gospel advance while, at the same time, gaining insight into the many and varied challenges facing missions practitioners in the 21st Century.

As many as 50 MKs, from a variety of mission boards and agencies, are on our campus every semester.  The Office for Cross-Cultural Engagement and Global Leadership seeks to engage these students by providing special events and activities each semester.

You can serve locally with an Impact Team through BSU, or internationally with a L.I.G.H.T. Team through the Center for Cross-Cultural Engagement and Global Leadership.

The Center for Cross-Cultural Engagement and Global Leadership partners with a variety of like-minded, evangelical, Great Commission organizations in cross-cultural ministry efforts and the task of raising up a new generation of Global Leaders.

The Center for Cross-Cultural Engagement and Global Leadership as well as various degree programs offers resources for those seeking to serve Christ in the context of missions.
