GVSM Standard & Culture

GV School of Missions is not a place to receive rehabilitation and it’s not a school for those just coming out of lifestyle sins. Our learning environment and school are not structured to help those struggling with self-control. Our focus as a ministry training center is not on correcting behavior in students, but our focus is to grow their potential to be in full-time ministry leadership positions. We are happy to recommend alternate ministries that can help students who are leaving challenging lifestyle circumstances.
