Calvary Global Network (CGN) desires to partner with other ministries that promote a gospel-centered understanding of the Christian life and Christian ministry. Because both ministries share a commitment to gospel-centrality, CGN is excited to partner with Western Seminary to train Christian men and women for a life of gospel-centered ministry.

About The Program

The CGN/Western Seminary partnership features innovative training and education opportunities provided at substantially discounted tuition costs. Participants in selected training partnerships will even have the opportunity to take advantage of ministry training at no cost.

The CGN/Western Seminary partnership is available to pastors/elders of CGN churches, as well as staff or lay leaders referred for the training partnership by their local CGN pastor/elders.


Who is Eligible?

Students in good standing and enrolled at least half-time for their degree program at Western Seminary (Coaching and Audit programs are not eligible), and affirmed by Michelle Wright (Director of Operations at CGN) as eligible for the partnership.

When should I apply?

As soon as possible. You are responsible to pay your full tuition amount on the due date, regardless of whether or not you are waiting on financial aid funds to disburse. Please complete the process below well in advance of the tuition due date to ensure your grant is applied before tuition is due. The financial aid application deadlines for current students are August 1 for Fall semesters, December 1 for Spring semesters, and April 1 for Summer semesters.
