Cross-Cultural Opportunities - J. Christy Wilson Center for World Missions

Cross-Cultural Opportunities

The Wilson Center posts cross-cultural ministry opportunities for students to participate in over the summer or during the semester. These are for ministry in person or virtually, short or longer term, and some are with Gordon-Conwell graduates.

Some of these opportunities may qualify for the equivalent for the WM721 OMP class for those who need the OMP equivalency credit to graduate. For more information contact: [email protected]. There may be, depending on interest, Zoom calls with the trip sponsors to answer questions.

*These are opportunities not affiliated with Gordon-Conwell classes. Any student doing personal international travel and returning must follow COVID-19 travel guidelines for the destination and return, including testing and a quarantine period.
