North Greenville University is committed to being a strategic partner in fulfilling the Great Commission given to us by our Lord Jesus Christ. Through an integrated program of academic discipline, spiritual preparation, and hands-on field experience, North Greenville University students are being prepared to fill strategic roles in the great task of world evangelization. Exciting opportunities in missions involvement area available to every student, regardless of his or her academic major or future career plans. Short-term mission teams (L.I.G.H.T. Teams) and field practicum experiences allow students to put their classroom training to work in “real world” environments and among people groups and population segments from every region of the world, including North America. An annual Global Missions Conference provides students with the opportunity to interact with missionaries serving on the front-lines of gospel advance while, at the same time, gaining insight into the many and varied challenges facing missions practitioners in the 21st Century.
Of particular excitement is the soon-to-be completed Craft-Hemphill Missions, Evangelism, and Christian Worldview Center. Among other functions, this center will enable us to promote missions, provide missiological resources, prepare missionaries, and produce Great Commission Christians who will have a global impact on the advancement of the gospel of Jesus Christ in the 21stcentury. This new building will also serve as the administrative center for the Intercultural Studies(Missions) Department of North Greenville University, as well as functioning as a missions research center, a missions mobilizing and sending hub, and a regional training center for individuals and churches that sense God’s call to cross-cultural ministry.
