The CGC is one of the largest student mission mobilization programs in the USA.

The Center for Global Connections is committed to representing Christ globally by equipping the SBU community to live missionally (Locally, Domestically, and Globally) by providing participants strategic educational experiences to be holistically transformed.

The aim of the Center for Global Connections is to connect students to a larger world.  Students should see their neighbor, their country, and "the ends of the earth" and move to action.  The CGC is committed to developing student leaders for a global society.  Students must learn to care for one another as team members while preparing and serving together.  The CGC leads students into the global classroom to learn and spread the message about Jesus Christ to all.
