About Cross-cultural Mission in GBUR

Acts 13.47: For this is what the Lord has commanded us: ´I have appointed you to be a light for the Gentiles, to bring salvation to the ends of the earth.´

We, in GBUR, develop the awareness of the need and the readiness of sharing the gospel in a cross-cultural context. We believe missions to be the climax of Discipleship, therefore we want our students not only to be good disciples who live and love the Word of God but also to be ready to share the Gospel and make disciples in cross-cultural context.

However, since GBU is a movement where students keep coming and going, GBUR needs to be creating opportunities for students to hear about missions and how they can be involved. GBUR has been conducting mission awareness conferences, Kairos courses and mission exposure trips in order to sensitize students on the need and urgency of carrying the Good News to the nations.

  • Mission Exposure Trip

    Mission exposure trips are organized to help participants see God's heart for the nations and be exposed to the reality of cross-cultural mission work of reaching the least reached people groups: where there is no viable church to evangelize its own people.


  • Mission Outreach to Rural areas

    There are many places especially rural areas of Rwanda where evangelical churches are very few in number and members. The students organize strategic outreach in partnership with local churches to evangelize and equip local Christians for follow up. We call it mission because it reaching out to other people outside of our fellow students and neighbors. But in mission term it is evangelism because we are reaching our fellow Rwandan.
