Why BGU?

Patrick Thompson
Jamaica - MATL

BGU is not just any other university. BGU will be most helpful if you want transformation, if  you want to pivot and to move to that stage in life where you are walking in God's purpose.

Dr. Lauren Speeth
USA - Ph.D. & DMin

I think that my dissertation and Ph.D. research provides bridges between the theologically minded and the scientifically minded communities.

In my dissertation, I looked at how the principles of Christian community development could help the body of Christ throughout the county.

Dr. Bekele Bedada Tulu
Ethiopia - Ph.D.

I joined BGU to sharpen my perspectives on understanding the issues of leadership and aiming to bring transformation in leadership.

Fred Billings

In my spirit, I knew there was still much to learn if I was going to successfully pass the businesses, resources, and missions ministry to the next generations. 

Working on DTL was transformational in and of itself, discovering joys in qualitative research.

From Ethiopia to Brazil, and from New Zealand to Canada, I have had a front-row seat to the work God is doing in leader’s lives, communities, businesses, and churches.

The DTL connected me with successful business and economic developers, presidents, and CEOs who helped me to see the vision for my project.

Dr. Michael Reading

Through BGU’s EMBA program, I hope to create a process that provides the opportunity to those who are autistic, ADD, ADHD, dyslexic, etc.

Connie Parker

While reading for one of my first classes it was like God gave me great clarity about the next steps.

Kudzai Masimira
South Africa - EMBA & MATL

I find the EMBA to be forward-looking and presenting the means for innovative solutions to the interrelated crisis the world is facing.

Kathy Pierburg
USA & Guatemala - MATL

God has now placed me in a leadership role in my church, directing missions and outreach.

Dr. Clifford Kuyokwa
Malawi - DTL

I am so grateful that today in Malawi, I am one of the young, energetic and very passionate leaders to help transform our country.

My dissertation was birthed out of helping congregations in urban cities find strategies in the merging process in order to have a long-term impact for the congregations.

Dr. Matthew Mbanga
Zimbabwe - DTL, MBA

Matt served small-scale farmers in a rural area of Zimbabwe where he taught Zimbabweans to apply the gospel of Jesus Christ to their lives through training in leadership and conservation agriculture.

Dr. Nita Kotiuga
Canada - DTL, PhD

I see how academia and spiritual formation, when united as a focus, transform each student, encouraging them towards bringing flourishing to God’s beautiful creation.

Sondra Hicks

We are creating a program to teach people around the world - especially targeting developing nations - how to grow food with regenerative farming practices.

Carolina Meza Clark
Colombia - EMBA

The EMBA program is helping me to go and walk with the people and create programs that are focusing on human beings. Cultivating the human being should be in the center of the economy.

Katie Berube
Guatemala - DTL

Our ministry in Antigua, Guatemala, called Abeja was directly birthed because of my studies at BGU.

"Part of what I love about studying at BGU is the relationships I have formed with students worldwide. Through class discussions and conversations, I have become aware of diverse perspectives – that the issues facing the North American Church I seek to address are not necessarily the same in other parts of the world.
