“AGTS and the Global Missions Department have been an integral part of my journey as a missionary since 2005. What has always been clear at AGTS, both through a master’s program and currently through the Ph.D. in Intercultural Studies, is that education is not an end in and unto itself, but rather a tool for extending God’s Kingdom. The interaction with both professors and classmates has frequently provided the catalyst for overcoming real-world challenges, developing new ministries, and invigorating my personal walk with the Lord. Programs led by, and filled with, missions-practitioners is one of the Global Missions Department’s greatest strengths and what sets it apart from other programs.”
