Students want to leave the church building Sunday morning knowing that their congregation is active in the community and the world. They want to see how their faith in Christ impacts the hungry, homeless...down the street and in the developing world.
While going on a trip is certainly a valid method for cultivating a mission heart, there are many other ways they can be involved. Every Christian student should be able to answer the question, “How are you involved in missions?” Every church should be able to answer the question, “How do you involve students in missions?”
Let's explore those questions together and ask God to lead us to transforming answers.
