Global Discipleship Certificate


New discipleship program! Horizon College and Seminary is partnering with Multiply to offer a Global Discipleship Certificate. This 8-month program combines three terms of studies at Horizon with six weeks of participation in ACTION, a six-week discipleship training and cross-cultural mission experience for young adults. You will experience God’s heart for the world as you serve for one month on a team of 4-10 people alongside long-term missionaries and local churches in Thailand.*
*If student registration is high, some students may serve in an alternate international location.

Duration: 8 months*

*Month duration is estimated on average full-time completion rates of 10 courses per 8-month period. Actual completion rates vary based on individual student course loads.

Your four-week international ministry assignment includes intercessory prayer, creative outreach, and compassion initiatives. Debrief allows you to rest, worship, and reflect on your experiences. This allows you to process your global mission experience as you prepare to reengage in mission back home.
