What is the Global Service Corps program (GSC)?

The Dick and Jesmarie Hurst Global Service Corps (GSC) is a two year mission engagement that provides an opportunity for graduates (and retirees) to: go and work alongside seasoned career field personnel & partners in over 20 countries; serve in a context that enables both giving and receiving of gifts; grow in their understanding and experience of how God is at work in the world.

Go, Serve, Grow.



 

Purpose & Structure

Assignments are on the basis of a two year appointment and provide valuable experience that can serve as a bridge to career field service for individuals seeking confirmation of their missions calling.

This program is resourced using a partnership model where GSC personnel will be responsible for developing relationships with partners who invest both financially and through prayer support. In addition to both training and field support, CBF Global Missions provides a health benefits package for all GSC personnel.

GSC Identity and Role
