The CGCS Blog

The Center for Great Commission Studies exists to equip people to serve the church and fulfill the Great Commission. With that goal in mind, we want to provide timely interaction with current events related to missions.

Mission Trips

Here at the CGCS, we’re happy to offer the opportunity for students to take what they’re learning in the classroom and apply it on the mission field. Led by our faculty, these trips are a great means to experience church planting and mission work alongside fellow classmates. Keep in mind that each trip counts for 3 credit hours, for free.

Current Trips


Throughout each year, we host several events to inform and mobilize students as they further refine their role in fulfilling the Great Commission. From panels, luncheons, social events, we try to offer a variety of events that bring our campus together to further promote missional living and missiological thinking.
