Fifteen Northwestern students to participate in summer missions

Fifteen Northwestern College students will spend a portion of their summer as short-term missionaries through the college’s Summer of Service (SOS) program. They will spend five to 12 weeks volunteering with mission partners in Alaska, Louisiana, Africa, Southeast Asia, Romania and Greece.

Students will work alongside long-term missionaries to build relationships with refugees, Buddhists and Muslims; tutor elementary students; assist with a climbing gym ministry; evangelize; and organize camps. They’ll assist organizations including Echo Ranch Bible Camp, Pioneers, Helping Hands, Poetice, Hope for Opelousas and Urban Impact.

Since 1981, Northwestern’s SOS program has encouraged and prepared students to be effective Christian servants around the world. Team members raise their own funds through the support of family, friends and their churches.
