My name is John Klaassen and I am the Program Coordinator for Global Studies. I am excited to hear that you are interested in Boyce College and especially that you are interested in our Global Studies Program.
My wife and I spent 18 years overseas working primarily with unreached peoples in both Western Europe and a restricted access nation. Our goal at Boyce College is to best prepare you for that type of work. The Global Studies program is built in such a way as to give you a solid biblical and missiological background plus equip you in some area like teaching English as a new language, relief and development or business. Because of our location in Louisville, Kentucky there are a plethora of opportunities for you in ministry with internationals. Over 100 languages are spoken in our school system, so opportunities abound.
Our hope is that God takes your years here at Boyce and multiplies your service tenfold somewhere in the world. Whether you end up staying in the US as a sender or go to the “ends of the earth,” we want you to be properly trained and strengthened to serve the Lord with all your heart.
I know that choosing a college today is a hard decision! I also know that God will bless you as you seek Him through this process.
Grace and Peace,
John Klaassen, Ph.D.
