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. Our most recent trips have been to Thailand, and Memphis, TN. This year we will be going to Boston to assist a college ministry, in out reach and evangelism, helping them to reach out to a campus that greatly needs Christ. There will also be a team going to Honduras this year over spring break, to observe and assist missionaries in their field of work. The Honduras team will also have to chance to interact one on one with the culture, as they plan to share the love of Christ and learn to live in a different setting.
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 Florida, Georgia, Wyoming, Alabama, Australia, Ukraine, Guatemala, and Peru (just to name a few), making an impact on the world for Christ. This summer we will be taking a team to Trujillo, Peru where we will assist ongoing ministries such as a Seminary, churches, and other missionaries in the area. We will also have Bible Clubs, sports camps, and medical clinics for the area villagers. We are also be leading a team to Debrecen, Hungary, where we will be sharing Christ with college students through conversational english in a coffee house setting.
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 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.
Praying for Missions
WBC has committed to pray for an unengaged/unreached people group 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 this group specifically. Maybe some day a Williams 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 seven-day prayer guide and a prayer bracelet for our specific people group.
