Missions allow students to develop a deeper understanding of God’s love for all people’s of the world. The nature of these experiences–interaction with other cultures, reflection, discussion, and service — produce a teachable arena where a student’s ideology and understanding of scripture come face to face with the world. In that place the compassion of Jesus can be learned; the Kingdom of God can be recognized; and a lifestyle of mission and servant hood can be developed.
See below for a description of all 2015 Missions Learning Opportunities. Application can be picked up in the Spiritual Life Department located on the 2nd floor of the Baugh Center.
