As a college student, there are so many options for how you can spend your summer! Epic Movement Summer Missions are an option where you’ll have the opportunity to take the good news of forgiveness in Jesus to the world. Not only will you be doing good work for the Lord, but He will grow you in faith and in skills you can have for a lifetime of following Jesus. Plus, you will experience a valuable cross-cultural exchange and even have opportunities for leadership and work.
Some summer missions go overseas and others are here in the U.S. Anywhere you go will involve opportunities to take steps of faith and following God as He stretches you to become the kind of person he wants you to be.
