while Global Scholars USA helps to send them out and equip them for service.
In the last 24 years, our fellows have done outstanding work for God’s kingdom, including work in such places as post-Cold War Moscow, Nigeria, The Gambia, Congo and China. We have recently increased our staff by adding a programme administrator, bringing our team to three part-time employees.
Our mission is to identify, nurture, develop, send, equip and support missional Christian academics for work, primarily in publicly funded universities around the world. We seek to inspire and influence students and university communities with the promise of Christian vocation and worldview for a deeper participation in God’s kingdom, including the flourishing of people and the planet, locally and globally.
Peter Schuurman, who is also a Society Regional Consultant, became executive director in 2018, with a background in campus ministry and religious studies. He envisions a more visible, more interdenominational and more active role for Global Scholars Canada in the years to come. Peter appreciates the Society of Christian Scholars for its potential to build a networked, empowered, transnational Christian academic community.
