With an Introduction by Dan Brokke and Tim Freeman
Bethany International is called to train and send men and women to reach and disciple the lost with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Since the first students were trained in 1948, there have been nearly 3,000 graduates, and hundreds of missionaries sent.
Today Bethany graduates and missionaries from many nations serve in dozens of countries while others are pastors, businessmen and women, godly parents, and professionals serving as God leads, being His agents in their unique spheres of influence. This passion continues today.
Since becoming President of Bethany International I have had a growing vision and excitement about Bethany’s unique opportunity and capacity to mobilize, train, and send a new generation of servant leaders for missions.
We live in perhaps the most exciting and challenging generation in all of history. God is giving Bethany new opportunities for the 21st century. As part of the vision to extend Bethany’s reach, we’ve begun the process of looking at various options including starting of Graduate Programs in Bethany College of Missions.

A Note From Tim Freeman, Chief Editor, GlobeServe Journal of Missions
This collection presents a description of Masters degree in International Development in some leading colleges and universities. From a reading of this material, it is clear that International Development as an academic subject or program has not received much attention from Christian colleges and universities. On the other hand, Christian involvement in development activities is growing by leaps and bounds in recent decades. We need trained personnel covered by the Word of God to carry out the command of our Lord Jesus Christ. Our hope is that the GlobeServe Schools around the world will become a spring-board to train men and women for this important task.
