How am I supposed to raise the funds for summer mission trips and internships? 

 

Every summer, hundreds of teens and adults raise support for mission trips. We suggest prayerfully reaching out to your church, family, and friends to ask if they will partner with you. Ultimately, support for mission work comes from God, not people and all of us trust Him in this area of our lives.

Students attend classes in the morning every weekday. Students also have a secured time each morning for their devotions. Students work in the afternoons, serving alongside our full-time missionaries in various departments. In the evenings, students have free time and do homework.
