About Us

Welcome to Halbert Institute for Missions at ACU - a place to learn effective ways to serve our Lord domestically and internationally.

HIM complements ACU’s undergraduate and graduate degrees by providing missions opportunities outside the classroom to all ACU students, regardless of major. We offer students, faculty and staff the opportunity to be involved in various missions and global service opportunities around the world.

Vision -- The entire ACU family, fully on mission with God

Mission -- To infuse missional and intercultural competence into the entire ACU campus, inspiring and equipping all students, faculty and staff to join in God’s mission as we become exceptional, innovative and real disciples for Christ in the world.

Halbert Institute for Missions (HIM) programs provide missions opportunities for students through short service trips, summer internships, and gap year opportunities around the world.

HIM partners cross-campus for other on-campus missional activities such a weekly Missions Chapel, the annual Broom Colloquium, and the Missions Student Association.

Team training and missionary care are vital pieces to the history of missions at ACU. HIM continues this work of forming teams, preparing them spiritually, culturally, theologically, and practically, and walking with them once on the field.

HIM partners with academic programs to provide co-curricular formation in missions. This training involves assessment of missionary candidates, the formation and development of teams, as well as site-specific training. Undergraduate and Graduate degree information can be accessed through our academics page.
