FUSION: North America

Spend your first year of college serving church partners.

Help plant churches across North America while in college? You bet. Fusion: North America is a four-year process that begins with specialized evangelism and discipleship training during your first year at Spurgeon College. By the summer after your first year, students are deployed to serve church planters across the continent. Upon returning, students complete their training over the next three years and earn a BA degree at Spurgeon College – the perfect education to develop as a leader For the Kingdom.

About the Fusion North America Program

Fusion: North America candidates will live within the context of a cohort (team) that is intentionally preparing for a summer of service alongside a NAMB (North American Mission Board) church planter. Fusion is committed to advancing, not hindering, the ongoing church planting strategy already in place. We expect our cohorts to participate in bold evangelism and Bible-centered discipling, beginning from the training phase, fall and spring semester, through the summer project. Fusion: North America candidates will not be expected to come with experience in these areas because they will receive sufficient training and experience during their time in Kansas City.
