Global Gospel

Register Today

How do you share the gospel with someone from a different culture—or from the same culture, but with a very different worldview? At Global Gospel camp, you’ll explore the challenges of ministering in the 21st century—and the exciting opportunities as well! You’ll learn basic skills for evangelizing in different contexts, and then get real-life practice through short missions trips. Most of all, you’ll gain confidence in the power of the gospel that crosses centuries and cultures.


  • Understand a biblical perspective about missions
  • Gain insight into the challenges facing missionaries in the 21st century and the exciting ways to overcome them.
  • Learn about world religions and ministry to people of other cultures through a mini missions trip to Atlanta, Georgia.
  • Participate in actual intercultural ministry in Atlanta’s urban environment.
  • Hear from experienced missionaries about how to adapt to a new culture without changing the Gospel’s message.
  • Play fun games to learn how to interact with people of other cultures.
  • Grow spiritually through devotions and Bible challenges.
