Students

Student.Go is a missions program of the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship that provides opportunities for students to serve with our field personnel and ministry partners as they live out CBF Global Missions commitments--cultivating beloved community, bearing witness to Jesus Christ and seeking transformational development.

Whether it's for a summer, a semester, or a year, students provide crucial assistance to the ministries of CBF field personnel and ministry partners. By serving with Student.Go, students also have the opportunity to discover their place within God's mission to change the world. Through these experiences, students live out CBF Global Missions commitments within the context of global poverty, global migration and the global church. Student.Go is open to undergraduate students completing their first year of college and at least 18 years of age, as well as graduate students of any age.

Short-term Opportunities and Process

Disaster Response

Respond during times of crisis by seeking opportunities to minister when disaster strikes. Although not a disaster relief organization, the Fellowship responds through CBF Disaster Response ministries, directed by Alan Williams. The Fellowship seeks to be a long-term presence, helping communities recover and rebuild. Learn about opportunities to serve in disaster affected areas.

Together for Hope

Together for Hope (TFH) is the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship's rural development coalition, a long-term commitment to working with 20 of the nation's poorest counties in order to affect change and break the cycle of economic disparity.

Encourager Church

Explore becoming an Encourager Church. Encourager Churches partner with field personnel to build bridges in mission engagement. In a hyper-connected and socially networked world, close partnerships with specific field personnel unleash the power of personal relationships to transform lives. The Spirit works in and among our relationships for the mutual transformation of our congregations, field personnel and those whom we seek to serve.
