Since 2009, over 300 recent grads of all majors have served in over 50 nations through GoCorps placements. We call them Goers! Our hope is that these reviews and reflections will inspire you to consider how you might connect your major to God’s mission through a two-year GoCorps placement.



German Language, Literature, and Culture Major
Youth Development Track, Austria

GoCorps is unique in the way that it streamlines the ministry application process: instead of choosing a mission organization and seeing how it fits you, you begin with your skills/strengths and discover where you can help fill a pre-existing need. There is no need to fill out individual ministry-specific application forms. I found this to be a revolutionary way of placing and cutting the waiting time significantly. ----- 2 years may seem like a lot of time and a daunting prospect, but they go by like a blink of an eye. It is an investment in the future - your own and most importantly the Kingdom's. (Feb. 2022)


Kinesiology Major
Sports Track, Italy

The advice I give to anyone considering being a Goer is to go for it!  This really is a priceless experience that will affect the rest of your life.  I feel now that if the Lord were to ever call me again to a new project overseas, I wouldn’t hesitate.  Growth doesn’t happen in comfort, and very often obeying God leads us into some very uncomfortable situations.  My call was just the slightest holy nudge, but boy am I glad I explored that instead of ignoring it.

Nursing major
Medical Track, Philippines

Personally, the last two years serving with GoCorps have been transformational. My love for Jesus and passion for the gospel have been ignited even more, and taking part in growing the Kingdom of God by loving people of a different culture has been the greatest gift. God is writing a magnificent story for his creation, and the role of watching Him do it in lives around the world is a treasure. Take the risk, breathe Him in, and let Him work through your ever-opening hands. Go for it!  (Sept. 2021)

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. We also developed a passion for discipleship, learned about God's heart for all peoples of the earth, and we grew in a conviction that there are MANY ways to be involved in God's global purpose. GoCorps helped us find our place in God's global work while continuing to grow in and embrace those values. They got to know us before helping us find a team that was a good fit; they invested in us as we prepared to launch out; and they connected us with an organization using creative strategies to do discipleship among the unreached. We are so thankful to GoCorps and recommend that anyone considering overseas work connect with them.  (Sept. 2020)


Communications major
Refugee & Pre-Natal Care Ministry, Middle East

The Support Raising Model is incredibly helpful. Although it may seem so unnatural to call and email people so much, it's not. There is so much biblical truth in fundraising as GoCorps shares with you. By fundraising, you are calling the Church to their potential - you are allowing the Church to be the Church! The model helps you discipline yourself in some of the uncomfortable moments of fundraising. It can be really hard, but the Model helps you to keep you on track. And although timelines look different, you WILL get the money with this model. You just have to commit to it.  (Oct. 2019) 


Psychology Major
Anti Human Trafficking Worker, Cambodia

In college, you think you know what your passions and skill sets are. But my role with GoCorps let me see what my passions and skills really were, as well as which ones I wanted to strengthen and sharpen. Serving helped me to specifically identify the areas I need more training. It was really important that I did not go to grad school right after college. At that stage, it was all too theoretical. My two years with GoCorps completely transformed the training in grad school. Now, my studies are so much more enriched because I have real faces and real stories that can flesh out the theory.  (Jan. 2015)


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. I grew up with the expectation from my family and society that I would pursue the American dream, without deviating from that path. This two year deviation has served to reveal how joyless that path is, and revealed the joy of a life focused on serving the Lord. In addition, on a very practical level, I grew skills like organization, effective communication, innovation, quick thinking, and problem solving through my experience. I had to navigate difficult situations that many people in my industry never will, giving me an edge over my peers.  (Sept. 2017)


Communications Major
Living Among Urban Poor, Asia

I went into my two years open to wherever God leads. I didn’t have plans for after the two years and that openness allowed me to fall in love with Thailand, the people, and the work. By the time my service was complete, I knew I didn’t want to leave and I knew that this is what God had made me to do.  (Dec. 2016)
