Foreign Trips

Students are required to take an internship at the end of the program in order to graduate. Each trip will be based on current airfares and cost of living in each country. Students will be encouraged and trained on how to raise offerings and monthly support for each trip, but VBM does not accept any financial responsibility for mission trips.

Work

The weekly class schedule is such that it will allow students ample time to work and earn money to offset the expense of their education. All students needing financial help are encouraged to find employment. Work schedules must be agreed upon with the employer prior to accepting employment that will not hinder the student from attending any regularly scheduled church service. Students are not allowed to work at any establishment requiring them to serve alcohol.

OGTC Financial Assistance

OGTC strives to make the cost of training as affordable as possible. Volunteer administration and faculty members, efficient overheads, student scholarships, and church matching programs help to keep training costs very low. Below are details about OGTC scholarships and the church matching program.
