Global Projects and Service Ministries

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 addressing some of those needs. It’s a life-changing experience for many, 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 summer months, teams led by students, 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, loving each other, leading peers, and wholeheartedly following Jesus.

On campus, a group of missions-minded leaders help plan and coordinate these trips. 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. This week-long conference, held every January, includes seminars, lectures, and keynote chapel speakers with the participation of numerous missions agencies.
