One key component of the mission of Campus Ministries here at Williams Baptist College is serve. We want our students to serve in the local church, but we also want them to serve others around the world. We facilitate this by taking two mission trips each year. We will take a domestic spring break mission trip and an international trip in early summer. Every other year we will take a longer international trip. We also have multiple opportunities for students to serve longer term trips in the summer.
This year at spring break we are going to be partnering with Mission Arlington in Arlington, Texas. The trip will be 3/19 - 3/24 and will cost $400. We will be doing different service projects around the city of Arlington to show the love of Christ.
This summer we will be going to Haiti. More info to come.

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.
