Students to attend World Mission Workshop at ACU

For immediate release
Oct. 2, 2002

College students from around the world will learn how to act as God's messengers at home and abroad while attending the World Mission Workshop at Abilene Christian University Oct. 3-5.

World Mission Workshop, an annual event that takes place between Church of Christ universities, provides students with opportunities to get to know each other and learn about God's work in missions. Close to 2,000 students are expected for the event.

"The purpose of World Mission Workshop is to provide college students with the opportunity to learn what God is doing in their world and find ways in which they can participate in God's global activity," said Dr. Gary L. Green, missions coordinator for Latin America at ACU.

The theme for this year's workshop is "Glorify, Unify, Testify." Students will have the opportunity to hear five keynote speakers and interact with experienced missionaries as well as participate in classes, small groups and worship settings that focus on what God is doing in the world. Other activities include a "Welcome to West Texas" fair and a cultural show to encourage students to form relationships with one another and possibly form future mission teams.

"This is a unique opportunity for ACU students to find out how they can be involved in missions around the world," Green said. "Mission opportunities abound throughout the world and are not limited to the stereotypical. Students can be a part of God's missionary effort by working in campus ministries, with refugees, by teaching English, through short term efforts, as a single, in a major metropolitan area and much more."

ACU students receive a discounted pre-registration fee of $20 and can pre-register online at www.missionsweb.net/wmw
