Welcoming Students from Around the Globe

Part of studying at CTSFW is engaging the wide variety of experiences and backgrounds our students bring to our campus community. Since 2011, students from no less than 32 countries have taken courses on our main campus and earned degrees in our programs. As we live and learn together, we look forward to lifelong partnerships serving God’s people around the globe.
