In 2011 there were 44 Global Scholars reaching lost students worldwide with the grace and truth of the gospel. Yet we dreamed of the day when there would be 100 Global Scholars reaching students around the globe. So we restructured and retooled the ministry and launched the "Multiply Your Impact" Strategic Plan to reach this goal by June 2016.
Thanks be to God, on June 22, 2016 Dr. Omar M. became the 100th Global Scholars professor! I'm certain as a way to remind us He can do more than we often ask or think, on June 24th God led Dr. Tom L. to join us, becoming the 101st Global Scholars professor!
To fund this growth these past four years required an additional $1.4 million, which we trusted God to provide through the "Multiply Your Impact" Campaign. I am thrilled to share that as of June 29th 100% of the funding was provided by generous partners like you. I thank God for your sacrificial giving to take the Word to the university students of the world!
Ultimately our desire is to reach more students. Students like Shivko in Eastern Europe, who this year took a class from a Global Scholars professor. As the semester ended he shared that having a Global Scholars professor "can make the whole difference. . . . If you are not a believer, you have this craving that there is something more to life. Believe it or not, young people look up to their professors." These 57 new Global Scholars professors have reached tens of thousands more students like Shivko these past four years!
We are so glad that because of you, <<First Name>>, so many more students like Shivko have found that there is "something more" to life through a relationship with Jesus Christ.

Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise;
his greatness no one can fathom.
One generation commends your works to another;
they tell of your mighty acts.
They speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty—
and I will meditate on your wonderful works.
They tell of the power of your awesome works—
and I will proclaim your great deeds.
They celebrate your abundant goodness
and joyfully sing of your righteousness.
