Mission & Vision

Our Mission

The Mission of Global Scholars Canada is to recruit and support Christian professors to teach in public universities overseas, in order to provide students with an education rooted in a biblical worldview, preparing them to be godly servant leaders in every sector of society in their home country.

Our Vision

One day every university student in the world will have at least one professor who articulates and demonstrates the love and lordship of Jesus Christ.

The vision is simple:

  • To change a nation, teach its leaders.
  • To teach its leaders, influence its universities.
  • To influence its universities, teach in its classrooms.

Our Strategy

Global Scholars Canada (GSC) provides public universities outside North America with well-qualified and well-prepared Christian faculty who:

  • Through teaching, scholarship, and personal interaction, influence the next generation of scholars and leaders during their university years;
  • Can be Christ’s presence and truth in places Christian workers are often prohibited;

We seek to utilize the buildings, staff and infrastructure of established, accredited universities overseas in order to reduce costs and place more professors globally.

How We Implement Our Vision and Mission

The ultimate goal of GSC is to make disciples of men and women in the international academic community who in turn will be motivated by God’s Spirit and qualified to teach others in obedience to God’s Word. As professors and students in public universities around the world become integrated into fellowships and committed to Biblical Christianity, they will impact their communities and their cultures for Christ.

GSC is committed to developing and articulating a clear and comprehensive worldview, shaped by the truth of Scripture and the Lordship of Christ. We will affirm Christ’s Lordship by submitting every aspect of our intellectual endeavours through the grid of Scripture and by living in holy obedience to his Word.

GSC affirms the unity of the Body of Christ by working as one across the wide spectrum of theological differences within the World Evangelical Fellowship Statement of Faith.

“Unless the LORD builds the house, its builders labor in vain. Unless the LORD watches over the city, the watchmen stand guard in vain.” (Psalm 127:1)

“Whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” (Colossians 3:17)

“I in them and you in me. May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.” (John 17:23)

Finally, GSC desires to maintain an organization which is faithful to God and accountable for what He gives us. We will prayerfully treat each donation as a holy gift consecrated for God’s use. We are determined to not forget those who give sacrificially. GSC was not established to raise funds, but to obey Christ’s command to teach the nations. We will be frugal, but not short-sighted; careful, but not miserly, trusting that God will meet all our needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19). We pledge to operate with prudent Spirit-led fiscal management, seeking always to balance our vision with faith and economic reality.
