At FHU, you’ll find opportunities to be involved in a variety of mission efforts including travelling on one of our many spring break mission trips, helping with disaster relief around the southeast, or just simply door knocking for Bible studies in the local community. To help with training and preparation for mission work, many FHU students, will be joining over 750 other college students at Camp Tahkodah in Arkansas for the 52nd annual Global Missions Experience. Formerly known as the World Mission Workshop, the name change redirects the focus from a primarily lecture-based format to a hands-on experience for students to gain practical knowledge in the mission field.
The theme this year is “Paint My Life for Your Glory.” During the weekend, students will have the opportunity to simulate lives in Africa, southeastern Asia, Central America, Appalachia, slums of the urban developing world, and refugee camps. Students who plan to be full-time missionaries, short-term missionaries, or just simply interested in missions come to experience the annual workshop. Next week, you will read blogs written from FHU students who attended the Global Missions Experience as they discuss the things they learned and how it’s helped to prepare them to go and make disciples across the nations.
