Missions Fair offers unique opportunities for students...
Tuesday, Oct. 8, the annual Lipscomb Missions Fair will be up and running in the Bennett Student Center.
The fair is put together and sponsored by the Lipscomb Missions department. It is designed to provide students with an easily-accessible way to learn about different missions opportunities offered by the university.
“We offer trips to places all the way from Nashville, if you want to stay in town and work with our immigrant communities, all the way to India and Australia,” said Missions Coordinator TJ McCloud, “It’s really an amazing breadth of opportunities.”
The Missions Fair is especially helpful for new students who are interested in getting involved in mission efforts.
The different trips and opportunities will be represented by different booths in the Student Center, where students can gather as much information as needed. Missions representatives will be at every booth to answer any questions.
Students can choose to participate in mission efforts that have been established at Lipscomb for many years, such as the mission trip to Scotland or the opportunity to work with an orphanage in Ghana, West Africa. This year, there have been a few newly added trips students can also choose to participate in, including a trip to a Navajo reservation in Arizona and a mission trip to the island of Nevis.
“The Mission Fair is a great way to come check everything out, and we’d love to have you,” McCloud said.
