Global Outreach Week (GO Week) 2015 is in full swing at Grand Canyon University! This is a week where the nations unite on campus and where beating hearts for people come together.

The GCU Global Outreach team is putting on events throughout the week to ignite passion in the hearts of GCU students to give them the tools and skills they need to help go overseas and serve!

Global Outreach is constantly growing and evolving. Global Outreach student leaders are here for their peers, with a goal of helping others realize their full potential as disciples reaching every nation with the Word of God.

In spring and summer 2016, GCU will send approximately 500 students on 27 trips around the globe. These trips are led by staff, faculty and even fellow students who see a need for Jesus in the world and are answering the call.

Events during GO Week include a mission fair night, reunion for past mission trips, a prayer for the nations day and a time to spend learning about sex trafficking around the globe. The Global Outreach student leader team, which consists of about 35 GCU students, is working diligently throughout the week to make this a memorable one for all.

Not only is this a time for students to learn about the mission trip opportunities that are available for them, but it is also a time for students to get involved in some of the globally minded ministries that GCU has to offer. From an introductory course on missions, to an in-depth semester-long course to help students thrive, the student-run Global Outreach ministries are available for anyone who is curious to what mission work looks like.

Take part in GO Week and see what God is doing in the world!
