What is the Jumpstart Program?
The Jump Start program serves as an additional option to Southwestern’s existing 2+2 program in the Master of Divinity (M.Div.) with a concentration in International Church Planting. The existing program allows students to attend classes in Fort Worth for two years and complete their studies while serving as missionaries for their final two or three years. The Jump Start program functions somewhat like a reverse of the traditional 2+2, taking College at Southwestern graduates and placing them on the field for two years at the front end and then returning them to Southwestern to complete their M.Div. studies.
