Global University has 11 active universities around the world with over 500,000 students receiving the lifechanging teaching of Christ. There are currently resources available in 126 languages. This upcoming year, over 800 students and pastors will graduate and will continue to launch the global mission of sharing Christ to the lost.

Thank you so much for your faithful support, I wonder who will receive Christ today through our partnership.

Again, thank you, for allowing us to move forward with the calling God has given to us! We couldn’t do it without you! Denise Godwin Executive Director International Media Ministries
