Global Scholars is called to equip missional Christian academics to have a redemptive influence among their students, colleagues, universities, and academic disciplines.
Our vision is that one day every student, colleague, university, and discipline will have Christian professors who communicate the truth, goodness, and beauty of Christ in the power of the Spirit for the flourishing (shalom) of society as they serve Christ in global higher education.
The vision is simple:
- To change a nation, teach its leaders.
- To teach its leaders, influence its universities.
A Chilling Reminder
Osama Bin Laden, a quiet student without direction, was influenced and mentored by Islamic scholar and theologian Abdallah Azzam, the father of global jihad, while studying engineering and business at the King Abdul-Aziz University in Saudi Arabia.
How might our world be different if a Christian professor had influenced him instead?
Purple on the map represents the countries our students are from.
Global Scholars professors serve Christ in universities day after day, week after week, year after year, often leading to deep and lasting influence in the lives of their students, colleagues, universities, and disciplines.
“Global Scholars has successfully been active in setting forth the challenge faced in the 26 academic curricula from a Biblical perspective, which option is rarely open to the larger number of the 131 million University students worldwide. But Global Scholars has been a choice leader in this endeavor as it continues to rise to the challenge year after year. May this ministry continue to prosper under the hand of our Lord.”
Dr. Walter Kaiser, President Emeritus, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary
“To reach the next generation for Christ the Christian worldview needs to be on university campuses! I support Global Scholars because they are able to bring students the Truth that will set them free.”
