Why Student Missions?

In response to the Great Commission, God calls all Christians to live "On Mission," making disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that Christ has commanded" (Matthew 28:19-20).  Empowered by the Holy Spirit, students are called to be God's witnesses locally, nationally and around the world (Acts 1:8).  The purpose of student missions is to:

  • Lead students to discover future areas of service as they learn from experienced ministry leaders.
  • Lead students to develop their relationship with God as He uses them to meet the spiritual and physical needs of others.
  • Lead students to deploy on a mission for Christ that will take them into new cultures to experience missions and missional living firsthand.
  • Assist local churches, campus ministries, and NAMB missionaries in mission needs related to church planting and evangelism that utilizes the skills, creativity and passions of students.
