NGU student outreach teams to visit more than 20 countries this summer

TIGERVILLE, S.C. – North Greenville University students will serve in more than 22 countries and seven states as mission and outreach teams head out this summer.

At a recent commissioning service held on the campus, several hundred students were recognized for their willingness to serve during their break. North Greenville has ten sponsored teams heading to Costa Rica, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, New York, Nicaragua, North Africa/Middle East, South Asia, Uganda and West Virginia.

Others will be serving in a variety of ministries in other parts of the world as short and long-term missionaries and youth mission trip planners in nursing homes, summer camps, and churches across North America.

“God continues to call out laborers from this generation of university students in a way that is both exciting and humbling,” said Dr. Allen McWhite, director of the school's Center for Cross-Cultural Engagement and Global Leadership. “Students are willing to put their comfort and even their lives on the line for the sake of sharing the love of Jesus in some of the world’s most difficult and remote places.”
