" 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.)

I remember being outdoors, up past the little village of Rankovce in Slovakia in Eastern Europe, winding up the dirt rock road toward the fields and hills covered in swaying wheat with dense forest on one side and expansive sky on the other.
I remember climbing up and out of…Continue
Before visiting the Roma Cultural Museum in Brno and Auschwitz in Poland, I stayed in the Slovak town of Kežmarok: a village boasting a 13th century castle and vocational school for Roma.
I learned from the English guide that during WWII, the castle had been used as a prison for Jews in the village before they were sent to concentration camps.…Continue
During the past two weeks in Thailand, I have had a lot of learning experiences. I have seen God in quite a few obvious ways. Coming to another country without many people speaking English has been challenging, but it definitely has its perks.
After feeling worse from the infection, I went down into Chiangmai to go see another doctor. I have the right medicine now to help me heal. Then, I saw someone about possibly being allergic to something in Thailand due to being…
It has been a wild ride in the past two weeks since I have last written about what has been going on here at the Seed Bank. I definitely struggled a lot more than I had anticipated. From language barriers to being sick, it has been hard to focus on my ministry here. But regardless of the hic-ups here and there, God shines through.
In my last reflection I wrote about my comparison of the English language between here in Thailand and India. I said that people in India seemed to speak…Continue
The Wednesday I flew in to Chiangmai, I was excited and nervous to arrive. I stayed in the city for a few days with ECHO. It was great to see another culture so soon after India! It is a whole different atmosphere. It is quieter and less crowded. There is much less trash on the streets here, but they still do burn the trash. Apparently, a month ago I would not have been able to see the mountains because the pollution was so bad.
My specific project at the Seed…Continue

I could begin these series of posts about culture and travel with clichés about the journey being better than the destination and about how every wanderer must lose his or her way to achieve fulfillment, but I’ll spare you the scrolling. You’ve heard it. Instead, I’m going to talk about privilege.
Now privilege is a buzz word in most social justice conversations that gets…Continue
