Missions at Johnson University

As our world becomes increasingly globalized, the task of ministering cross-culturally–whether in the US or around the world–is increasingly urgent. Wherever God is leading you, Johnson University missions programs can help you get there.

Johnson University’s School of Intercultural Studies offers an excellent selection of missions-related majors. Opportunities abound to experience living and working in diverse communities during your studies. For example, students have the opportunity to choose to live overseas during a mentored internship for an entire summer. Our professors are highly educated and also speak from personal experience in serving in a variety of capacities around the world. They can help you develop your skills for interpreting culture and relating to people who do not look like you or talk like you. You can be the one who helps them understand Christ!
