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, Memphis, TN, and Boston, MA. This year we will be going to Limbe, Haiti where the team will assist a Haitian Christian University, a local church plant, and establish an Aquaponics system (a source of 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 Florida, Georgia, Wyoming, Alabama, Australia, Ukraine, Guatemala, Brazil, Hungary 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 on a University campus, local high schools, and in a coffee house ministry.
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 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.
Here is a video of the impact this has had on our campus: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NPjrNwHHEvQ
