Is this program for me?

Do you have a heart for reaching those in desperate situations like human trafficking victims, prostitutes, drug addicts, prisoners, and the poor and needy? If you are burdened to make a difference in this world as a servant and a witness, this may be the ideal program for you.

Practical Ministry Experience

  • Gain a biblical understanding of the relationships between compassion, evangelism, and social justice issues and why all three must be present to give a complete representation of the gospel.
  • Learn how effective outreach and ministry can serve the physical, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual needs of individuals.
  • Be prepared to do evangelistic and compassionate outreach work for every age, from children to seniors, in a variety of environments with weekly trips to such places as street missions, transition houses, shelters, soup kitchens, prisons, drug rehabs, and at-risk youth programs.
  • Use your gifts in such areas as dance, music, drama, sports, and tech each week in ministry opportunities.
  • In addition to weekly and monthly service opportunities, you will head to New York City for a ten-day ministry trip, embark on a ten-day cross-cultural trip to a foreign country, and mentor and lead fellow students on ministry trips.
  • Cap your learning journey with a four-month internship in your final year, under the supervision of an experienced leader in a social justice or compassion ministry in an urban or cross-cultural setting.
