What We Do

GoCorps works to make two years of global missional service a normalized, accessible next step to Christian students and young professionals of all majors and backgrounds.  We place motivated recent grads to use their degree alongside long-term projects sharing the hope of Christ and addressing physical needs, healing and opportunity

3.14 billion people are "unreached" by the gospel

65% of the world live in religiously restricted areas

1.45 billion people in the world live in poverty

The Opportunity

God is already at work. And we see new ways to join him.

Skill-Based Placements

Traditional missionaries with Bible degrees often have difficulty acquiring visas in regions with the least access to the gospel. A more strategic method is placing people with practical skills and applied degrees–in medicine, engineering, business, job creation, IT, education, social work, and more–to serve in gospel roles.

Two-Year Placements

We believe in the strategy of two-year placements. We consider it the sweet spot for most grads, between the open-ended commitment of long-term service and the limited influence of short-term trips. Two years is long enough to meaningfully engage in a culture and become conversational in the local language, both key factors to making significant contributions to long-term projects.

Andy

Engineering Major
Refugee Outreach, Middle East

One of the biggest takeaways from my service overseas was a deeper sense of surrender to God for the remainder of my life, in addition to an excitement for pursuing the building of the Kingdom above all other pursuits.

Jake & Amber

Public Relations/Education Majors
Agriculture/Teaching, SouthEast Asia

We were deeply involved with Campus Outreach during our undergraduate studies. Through CO we learned the value that believing community has in helping us to discern God's will.

Noelle

Social Work Major
Compassion/Justice Track, Middle East

The GoCorps training was so helpful! I knew I wanted to go overseas but didn't know how to get going. GoCorps helped me get connected and out there. They walked alongside me through the whole process. I followed their fundraising model and was fully funded in 40 days!

Gabe

Business Entrepreneurship Major
Compassion/Justice Track, Middle East

My time overseas has been such a rich experience. Through witnessing injustice and brokenness day in and day out I was faced with the reality and weight of sin. I am so much more aware of the need and goodness of the Gospel. It truly is good news!
