" 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.)

Something to think about...
This is a prayer from Marian Wright Edelman's book- "Guide My Feet. Prayers and Meditations for our Children" :
"Lord, You told us, 'Blessed are the poor in spirit.' The world says, 'Blessed are those high on spirits.'
You said, 'Blessed are those who mourn.' The world says, 'Blessed are those who maim and torture.'
You said, 'Blessed are the meek.' The world says, 'Blessed are the arrogant and the strong.'
“Life is beautiful.”
“What do you know about life?”
“Have you ever really worked for it?”
“Have you ever struggled?”
“Have you ever bled?”
“What do you know about life?”
“I know it’s beautiful.”
“You know nothing.”
One of my favorite films is ‘Life is Beautiful.’ It’s an…Continue
My friend Nadia* is a force of nature.
She worked as a translator for the United States Army while raising a young daughter, Nadin.* Due to her work with the military, her family was at risk in Iraq so she applied for refugee status. Now she lives in Ft. Worth and helps struggling refugees adjust to their new lives.
She taught me how to make my first Iraqi meal (which is the best food on earth) and anytime we come over for “a sit” she brings…Continue
I’ll start this one out with life is far too fast-paced to be ashamed of what you believe.
Blink. Wink. Turn your cheek. It’s gone.
C.S. Lewis said he didn’t write about things he already understood perfectly in his mind. He wrote to bring clarity. He wrote to reason and understand.
So that’s what I’ll do. I’ll try to get some understanding.
I’m going to tell you a story. I’m not going to sugarcoat it or dress it up with…Continue
The first time I went to the third Baptist church of Arica, I was excitedly surprised that they call each other hermano and hermana (brother/sister). When they get together, they use language that always reminds them they are family. It’s tradition here. And I’m impressed.
This intentional familiar language takes on new gravity, though, when we consider what’s been happening with the church this past year. Blake has just finished his time as interim…Continue
Would you like to hear about culture? Would you like to know about community? Would you like to listen to a detailed plan for world peace, youth empowerment and other questions they ask Miss America contestants?
I can’t give you a simple solution. I can’t lay it out for you in a perfectly structured essay, give you pretty statistics in a visually-pleasing infographic or call up Bono and try to improve the Millennium Development Goals.
I’m not Gandhi,…Continue
