WACO, Texas (Oct. 4, 2016) – Baylor University Missions will host the 2016 Missions Fair from 9 a.m. to noon on Wednesday, Oct. 5, at Waco Hall, 624 Speight Ave.
Representatives from 25 international and domestic missions and ministry organizations will meet with students, share about their work and help students find ways to get involved.
“Through the Missions Fair event we hope to raise student awareness regarding the possibilities for service both through Baylor Mission Trips and the many opportunities that other organizations have to offer,” said John Hewitt, ministry associate for missions education and global missions at Baylor. “We know that Baylor students have a wide variety of passions and skills, and we hope that the Missions Fair will be a chance for them to tangibly see how they can use their God-given gifts for the service of Christ and the Kingdom.”
Some of the visiting organizations include Beyond, GoCorps, Orphan’s Heart and Wycliffe Bible Translators.
“We send out invitations to missions organizations across the world that have shown interest in recruiting college-aged students,” Hewitt said. “We are always looking to grow the event to ensure that students are given a wide variety of opportunities within the realm of missions and ministry.”
Funds for the Mission Fair are provided by the Lynn A. & Jacqueline S. Harmon Endowment.
