The Global Fellows Program prepares and equips young adults to contribute meaningfully to these overseas missions interships. It also provides a framework for integrating crosscultural experiences into lifetime vocations, whether as career missionaries or as professionals back in the States. We seek to form Global Fellows with a love for the local church, a humble posture towards the global church, and a theological and cultural understanding of the mission of the whole church and their place within it. When Global Fellows leave Charlottesville and begin terms of international service, we hope they will be better prepared to thrive in a cross-cultural environment, learn and contribute meaningfully during their time abroad, and return to the States with a mature perspective on the global church.
