Missions is a very important part of our ministry and we desire to see all students on mission with God all over the world. We take a mission trip each spring break and we also help students find somewhere to serve during the summer, here in the United States or overseas. We also invite all WBC students, faculty and staff to join us in prayer for the spread of the Gospel throughout the world.
Spring Break Missions
Each Spring Break we take a week-long mission trip. A few of our recent trips have been to Thailand, Haiti, Memphis, TN, and Boston, MA. This past Spring Break we went to Limbe, Haiti where the team assisted a Haitian Christian University, a local church plant, and established an Aquaponics system (a system made for sustainable living). This trip is in partnership with the Arkansas Baptist State Convention. For more information on what God is doing in this area of Haiti you can visit: ABSC Haiti Response.
During the summer, we send student missionaries all over Arkansas, the United States and the world to share the love of Christ. Students have served in Alabama, California, Florida, Georgia, Wyoming, Australia, Guatemala, Hungary, Peru, and Ukraine (just to name a few!), making an impact on the world for Christ. This summer we took a team to Trujillo, Peru where we assisted ongoing ministries such as a Seminary, churches, and other missionaries in the area. We also had Bible Clubs, sports camps, and medical clinics for the area villagers. We also had a team in Debrecen, Hungary, where they shared Christ with college students through conversational English on a University campus, local high schools, in a coffee house ministry, and also assisted in building a Christian school.
Winter Break Missions
Christmas in China 2014
Over the past 13 years more than 2,200 students have spent
their Christmas in China sharing the Gospel. We are so excited by
everything God did during Christmas in China 2013. With approximately
240 participants, the Gospel was shared with 20,721 people and 261
followed Jesus! Over the past 13 years more than 2,200 students have
spent their Christmas in China sharing the Gospel. This year the IMB is looking for even more students to partner
with them. What better way to spend your Christmas break than sharing the
love of Christ with those who have not heard?
Registration is now open for 2014. Check out projects at imbstudents.org/ChristmasInChina. Have questions? Talk to Campus Ministries or call 804.219.1363 or email email@example.com
Many different types of mission opportunities are available and we will help you find an area that best fits you and your desires. Throughout both semesters we will have representatives of mission agencies on campus recruiting students to be a part of their summer projects.
For more information visit the Campus Ministries office in the Mabee Student Center. For other information on summer missions opportunities within the United States visit the student page of the North American Mission Board and for international mission opportunities visit the collegiate page of the International Mission Board or IMB One LIfe.
Praying for Missions
WBC has committed to pray for unengaged/unreached people groups on the other side of the world. An unreached people group is a people group in which less than 2 percent of the population are Evangelical Christians. We are praying for the Gospel to be brought to these groups specifically. Maybe some day a WBC student will be the one sharing the Gospel with this group.
If you would like to join us in our prayer commitment, stop by the Campus Ministries office and pick-up a prayer guide or more information about a specific people group or visit the IMB Prayer page for more ways to pray!
Here is a video of the impact this has had on our campus: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NPjrNwHHEvQ
