Missions

 

Andrews University has adopted the following motto: “Seek Knowledge. Affirm Faith Change the World.” Here at Student Missions, we believe the experience of being a student missionary heavily affirms our motto.

As a missionary, you will learn about life from a broader perspective. The missionary calls vary from around the United States to across the globe. Whether the culture is more familiar, or very different, gaining a year of experience in “the real world” will allow for the Andrews student to learn about life in a tangible way.

Sound like something you're interested in? Then get involved!

Our mission is to help you prepare for ministry no matter what your career is. And you'll discover that it's hard not to get involved at Andrews, where spiritual life is all around you. It's what lights up every classroom, office, residence hall and smile that greets you on your morning walk across campus. So sign-up for one of the many on- and off-campus ministries, and make your religion a seven-day experience. Contact us at sm@andrews.edu.
