" Student.Go allowed me the opportunity to work with CBF field personnel who are passionate and compeletely dedicated to the mandate of Christ to show compassion, love and friendship to beautiful men, women and children who our world who have been marginalized and labeled " the least of these." Through partnering with them on a day to day basis, my worldview was expended, passions were deepened and my heart was broken for the circumstances faced by my ESL students. God used…Continue
Student.Go provides summer and semester service opportunities for graduate and undergraduate students
Student.Go - a program of CBF Global Missions - provides opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students to serve among and advocate for the most neglected people in our world. Our positions include a wide variety of locations and unique types of ministry and are intended to provide students with hands-on missions experience. Students serve for a summer or a semester alongside CBF Global Missions field personnel and ministry partners in locations around the globe. Not only do the students gain invaluable experience in cross-cultural service, they also provide crucial assistance to the ministries with which they work. Through these experiences, Student.Go strives to help students reach beyond their culture, beyond their comfort zones, and beyond themselves to be the presence of Christ in the world.
Student.Go is open to undergraduate and graduate students 18 years of age and older. Applicants must have completed at least one semester of college before their term of service begins. [There is no upper age limit! All ages of undergrad and graduate students are welcome!]
Student.Go reflects the priorities of CBF in its emphasis on holistic ministries, taking seriously God’s mandate of doing justice and mercy and Christ’s instruction to care for the hungry, naked, sick, homeless and imprisoned as we would care for him. We are committed to bearing the presence of Christ and the transforming message of the gospel to the most neglected persons in our world without borders. We also value God’s calling of both women and men to all types of ministry and seek to support both male and female students in their following of God’s will in their lives.
Student.Go provides room, board, local transportation and a stipend ($1,000 for a summer, $1,500 for a semester) as well as 4 days of orientation before you go and a debriefing retreat at the end of the summer.(Some positions may require extra fund raising due to their length,location or the nature of the work.)

Do you see the little girl peeking shyly from behind dark eyelashes and a black hijab?
“She’s not from around here,” the local men mutter from their rocking chairs.
The Texas heat and distinctive drawl are foreign to her. She didn’t grow up near the Stockyards. She’s never been to a Cowboys game or seen the Rangers hit a home run. She doesn’t remember the Alamo.
She was born in a different place. She was forced to leave her homeland due…Continue
It started out like any Friday night should. I was riding in a car with 3 guys reaping havoc and tearing up Ben's car with a banana and water (sorry Ben!). We had just eaten out, and we were going to Food Lion to get snacks, and then to Ben and Mike's to reap further havoc. While we were standing around trying to decide what drinks to get, Mike gets a phone call. I heard him say, "Yeah, we will definitely be praying for the house..." or something to that effect. None of us had any…Continue
Monday, June 10, 2013 marked the 50 Year Anniversary of Bloody Monday; Bloody Monday is when a group of African Americans and a few Whites peacefully protested against segregation. They were met with violent opposition, as they were beaten by police officers and sprayed with a fire-fighting hose. 60 people were arrested and nearly 50 were injured (…Continue
For those of us who grew up in the middle of White Bread America, we may be asking exactly who the refugees are.
(I didn't really know either)
Where do they come from?
Why are they here?
(We hear this one a lot)
Why can’t they go back to their country?
As you will soon find out, and as the people I am so blessed to be working with this summer are sure to be finding out, I am absolutely obsessed with the prayer of St. Francis (a piece of it is the title of this blog). My obsession is so severe, I am highly considering getting the beginning of the prayer tattooed down the top of my right arm.
The reason I chose "pardoning" for the title is for various reasons. See, I was robbed sometime between…Continue
So it’s not all sunshine and kumbaya togetherness at the apartment complex.
Kids can be vicious toward each other. Bloody noses from stray balls abound. Kids are crying right and left. I find myself forced to be the mean ‘adult’ in this chaos, and that’s more than a little scary.
A time may come in your Student.go assignment when you find yourself huddled behind closed blinds, hiding from 20 some odd screaming refugee…Continue
