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 offer mission opportunities 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 Nashville, TN, Thailand, Haiti, Memphis, TN, and Boston, MA. This past Spring Break we went to New York City and SE Asia. The teams worked with Justice Ministries of the Metropolitan NY Bapt. Association and in SE Asia assisting IMB missionaries establishing an Aquaponics system (a system made for sustainable living).
Sign up for this year's Spring Break Trips (March 19-27)
We are looking at returning to the New England area outside of Boston, MA .
Email email@example.com if you are interested. More details to come...
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 past summer we went to Limbe, Haiti where the team assisted a Haitian Christian University and a local church plant. 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
Sign up for our 2015 Haiti summer mission - dates TBD! Look for more opportunities to come!
Winter Break Missions
Christmas in China 2015
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 2015. Check out projects at imbstudents.org/ChristmasInChina. Have questions? Talk to WBC Campus Ministries or call 804.219.1363 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
One of our favorite partnerships in the summer is with Nehemiah Teams. In just 52 days, Nehemiah led his people to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem, restore a nation, and revive a people. It was a short-term project that had eternal results. In the same way, Nehemiah Teams are leading the next generation to reach every nation... standing in the gap among the un-reached and hard to reach. Nehemiah Teams offer short-term full-summer mission projects that have eternal results (focused in SE Asia). Another project of Nehemiah Teams is Project 52, which strategically sends college-age people to the un-reached in North America. Read more at http://nehemiahteams.blogspot.com/.

Praying for Missions
WBC has committed to pray for unengaged/unreached people groups. An unreached people group is a people group in which less than 2 percent of the population are Evangelical Christians. WBC Campus Ministries has adopted the people groups of the Khmer and Vietnamese in Cambodia. We are praying for the Gospel to impact these groups specifically. Maybe some day a WBC student will be the one sharing the Gospel with these groups.
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! Other resources: The Joshua Project and PeopleGroups.org.
