“School of Global Harvest stands out because of the focus, the content, and the participants. Participants focus on the biblical foundation of our global mission and then combine this with the realities and challenges of being a message-bearer in our contemporary world. And all of this is done in a global, multi-cultural learning setting so that participants understand that they are literally joining the whole church taking the Gospel to the whole world.” – Paul Borthwick, Senior Consultant, Development Associates International

“School of Global Harvest provides cutting-edge missionary training for strategic missions.” – Lalano D. Badoy Jr., National Director, Philippines Mission Association (PMA)

“School of Global Harvest is the kind of training I wish I could have had before serving as a cross-cultural missionary. The combination of looking at current mission trends and practices through the light of Scripture as well as learning and praying together with those from many different cultures who have a common drive to fulfill His Great Commission is a magnificent opportunity that anyone headed into missions should take advantage of.” – John Robb, Chairman, International Prayer Council, USA
