WHY HOUSTON, TEXAS?

  • Thousands of unreached from Thailand and Vietnam, Pakistan and India, Somalia and Afghanistan
  • Enormous numbers of international students
  • Almost 1 in 2 speaks another language besides English
  • If iit were its own country it would be the fourth largest refugee resettlement nation in the world 

 

WHY IS THIS SO IMPORTANT?

"We should be able to see in the multiplying opportunities to reach many foreigners in America a divinely appointed means of rapidly extending the third angel's message into all the nations of earth. God in His providence has brought men to our very doors and thrust them, as it were, into our arms, that they might learn the truth, and be qualified to do a work we could not do in getting the light before men of other tongues" (Evangelism 570).

 

WHEN IS THE PROGRAM?

August 23, 2018-May 26, 2019. A further one-year internship can be applied for after completion.

 

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

Tuition, room and board is $7,000 for 9 months. This is about $777/month. Students are encouraged to work as literature evangelists the summer before coming to raise their funds and gain an excellent experience in personal relationships and witnessing. Students may also raise monthly donations to cover this expense since it is really a mission they are accomplishing, not just their own training.

Some scholarships are also available based on need and first-come, first-served basis.
