Bethany Global University

Are you in the way of your ministry?

Your language, your ideas, your style, your culture. They may be holding you back.

Our minds are programmed by culture to help us navigate society. It’s what tells us right from wrong, fast from slow, how to respond, how to know when something is wrong, and more.

Most of us are culture blind.

We can’t see beyond our own culture, let alone minister effectively to another. Ministering within our own culture is hard enough, right?

But, what if…

What if you could connect with different cultures as easily as you could your own? What if the blinders of your own culture fell off to show you how different cultures saw things. What if you could feel what they feel?

Wouldn’t it be worth it?

We think it is.

This is our calling at Bethany Global University, and whether you want to be a missionary, do inner city ministry, or collaborate with other believers around the world, we want to help you “take off the blinders” and teach you how you can extend your ministry.

Earn An Intercultural Masters Degree

BGU offers three accredited intercultural graduate degree programs to help you reach farther, extend your ministry, and multiply your impact.

Intercultural Ministry Studies

Reach farther by learning how to cross cultures, contextualize the gospel, and do ministry among peoples that are different from your own.

Intercultural Ministry Leadership

Extend your ministry by learning how to collaborate interculturaly, minister in other nations, and strengthen your leadership skills.

Intercultural Ministry Education

Multiply yourself as a missionary or missions professional. Learn how to train and equip the next generation of mission workers.


Not only are BGU’s graduate programs convenient for those who work in full-time ministry, it’s designed just for you. Each course will challenge you to apply the lessons learned into your current ministry. This hands-on approach allows you to fully ingrain each lesson into your memory.

Each Graduate Course Is:


Taken One at a Time

Take the time you need to fully absorb one subject at a time. (Yes, you overacheivers are allowed to take two at a time.)


(8 weeks in length)

The short modules keep the degree programs moving along at a slow enough pace to absorb the material, but fast enough to complete your degree in a reasonable amount of time (2.5 years on average).


On Your Schedule

The courses are 100% online and flexible. You get to decide when to study.
