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

Whether it's for a summer or a semester, 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 contexts of global poverty, global migration and the global church. At CBF, we value God's calling of both women and men to all types of ministry and seek to support both male and female students as they follow God's will in their lives.

Undergraduate students completing their first year of college and at least 18 years of age, as well as graduate students of any age, may apply. We have funding for 20 opportunities in the summer, and 5 opportunities in both the spring and fall terms.




As we explore genuine, sincere and innovative ways to minister during this time, we look to do mission work in different ways. We seek to continue to give college and graduate students a chance to grow into their calling, in both virtual and in-person opportunities. The mission may look different but remember, the message is the same, as we turn crises into opportunities, and seek new, bold and transformative ways to serve Jesus Christ.

Our commitment at CBF is to provide a meaningful experience that allows students to gain ministry insights that are unique to the times we are living in. As congregations and ministry sites are exploring new, bold and transformative models for ministry, we believe that there is no better time for a student to be engaged in learning about the future of the church/mission. We also believe that there are unique gifts and abilities that students will be able to share to undergird and strengthen ministry.

For summer 2023, we will continue to offer both virtual and in-person placements for domestic and international positions.
