Global service trips coordinated through the Halbert Center for Missions and Global Service provide many opportunities for all ACU students to begin developing a missional framework for life. Many of these trips take place in a ministry setting that allow students to serve in their chosen field of endeavor or area of interest. Halbert Center partners cross-campus with departments and non-academic groups to send ACU students, faculty, staff, and alumni on trips lasting anywhere from 5-21 days.
All ACU short term teams prepare missionally, cross-culturally, and spiritually through weeks of training. Teams debrief immediately after return, to process the experience and discern how it fits with their vocational calling as disciples of Christ. The Halbert Center strives to partner with organizations on the ground that empower those they work with, and to join with God in work He is already doing through faithful, capable people all over the world.
