Jesus moved into the neighbourhood. He took time to immerse himself in a culture and a language so he could love the people in the neighbourhood. He lived out his love for the Father before their eyes. His life transformed and impacted all those whom he met in his neighbourhood. We believe that “moving into the neighbourhood” requires a long-term commitment. We are committed to Jesus’ model of moving into a culture and living amongst a new people group for a long period of time.
Because of this, the primary focus of Go Global is to equip and send out longer-term International Workers. Apprentices serve for 2 years and most International Workers serve for 4-year commitments, or longer. To love people, time is needed to learn their language and culture well. Go Global explores international ministry as a career with Global Ministries of the C&MA in Canada.
