Global Projects and Service Ministries

Kara Bergstrom
Coordinator of Global Projects

Short-term service learning projects provide members of TWU’s community with opportunities to see the urgent needs of people in the world and to play a part in meeting some of those needs. For many, it is a life-changing experience as they step outside their comfort zones and trust in God to minister in and through them. Each year, during Independent Study Week and the month of May, teams led by students, staff, and faculty are sent throughout the world in obedience to Jesus’ command to make disciples of all nations. Teams go to serve and learn. They learn about other cultures, about loving each other, about leading peers, and about wholeheartedly loving and following Jesus.

On campus, a group of missions-minded students are led by two student missions coordinators. This group meets weekly to pray for the world; invites speakers and organizations to address current trends and issues in world missions; maintains a library of short and long-term missions opportunities; and organizes the Student Missions Conference. The week-long conference held every January includes seminars, lectures, and keynote chapel speakers with the participation of numerous missions agencies.
