“He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.“ (Mark 16:15)

Olivet Theological College and Seminary study abroad programs are offered in over 30 cities on all continents. Closely connected with OTCS’ ministry practice program it gives the opportunity to spend up to one year taking internships at one or more ministry partner organizations of OTCS. These are often located in cities most in need of the gospel and therefore an ideal training ground for future ministers.

Ministering and studying in another country allows for incredible experiences outside the box, makes you a more informed and empathetic global citizen, and creates lifelong memories. Close to 100% of OTCS students graduate with first hand international experience in a different culture. Wherever YOU go and whichever ministry you choose, you will travel with the benefit of OTCS exceptional networks, advising resources, and spiritual support.
