2020 Vision of Global Service: How Covid-19 has impacted our travel, but not our reach.

Even with travel restrictions brought on by Covid-19, Global Partnerships has not stopped preparing students to engage cross-culturally. In this historic political climate, we are working with partners both in Chicago, the U.S., and around the globe to provide both in-person and virtual learning experiences that will challenge students to think and act with an inclusive, justice-oriented perspective of the world.

Travel with a Purpose

Our Mission

Global Partnerships provides opportunities for students to use their gifts and callings to serve with local partners, both in the US and abroad.

Our Vision

North Park students serve with trusted international partners already engaging in transforming community work. Students go to participate with them, learning from them what it means to be a follower of Jesus in an intercultural context. Both the students and the partners grow in relationship and in commitment to justice-centered lives that lift up communities both in the US and abroad.
