ARE SHORT-TERM MISSIONS TRIPS ENOUGH FOR UNIVERSITY STUDENTS?If you've already done an outreach, don't you want more? Don't go through college without learning how to make a difference.
You hunger for relationships. You desire meaningful experiences. And you seek justice for the poor. Right? But desire is not all it takes to know how to make a difference.
Where can you turn for a practical and spiritual experience that goes deeper, helping you focus your passion on the world that Jesus loves?
