Andrews Holds 3rd Annual Shop Berrien Week
Supports student missionaries
From January 28 to February 1, 2019, the Andrews University Office of Campus Ministries will hold their third annual Shop Berrien Week. This event gives Andrews students, faculty, staff and local community members the opportunity to raise money for those who would like to serve as student missionaries. In order to make this event possible, Andrews has collaborated with several local businesses (see list below) who have agreed to set aside a designated percentage of each purchase to support student missions. Proceeds from this week help support an average of 25 missionaries per year.
Shop Berrien Week Stores & Dates
January 28: Baguette de France—10%
January 29: Mabuhay Oriental Store—10%
January 30: Village Do It Best Hardware—15%
January 31: ABC Bookstore—10%
February 1: Apple Valley—5%
June Price, University chaplain, says, “The student missions department is delighted to partner with local businesses in helping support Andrews University students serving around the world. Shop Berrien Week is a great opportunity for community members to support local businesses while at the same time helping student missionaries go to the mission field.”
In fact, Shop Berrien Week is just one part of an annual Student Missions Week at Andrews University. This week is designated as a time to celebrate and highlight students who have returned from the mission field, listen to the stories and experiences of those who have served, prepare others who have decided to serve and encourage students who are feeling called to take time to go into the mission field.
This year’s Student Missions Week will occur in tandem with the Spring Week of Prayer. Featuring guest speaker BC Nwade, an Andrews alum currently pastoring in Ohio, each of the morning programs will be about making room for God in daily life, while the evening programs will focus on student missions and feature various student missionary testimonies. On Monday evening there will also be a Student Missions Expo that highlights the culture of ten locations where student missionaries have worked. In addition, there will be a booth available to send notes to current missionaries.
