NGU students to reach out all over the world through summer missions

North Greenville University students will cover the globe as mission and outreach teams head out this summer. Mission teams from NGU will serve more than 22 countries and 17 states.

At a recent commissioning service held on the campus, several hundred students were recognized for serving all across the world during their upcoming summer break. NGU has ten sponsored teams heading to Costa Rica, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, New York, Nicaragua, North Africa/Middle East, South Asia, Uganda, and West Virginia. Others will be serving in a variety of ministries in other parts of the world such as short and long-term missionaries, youth mission trip planners, in nursing homes, summer camps, and churches across North America.

“God continues to call out laborers from this generation of university students in a way that is both exciting and humbling,” said Dr. Allen McWhite, Sr. Director, Center for Cross-Cultural Engagement and Global Leadership. “Students are willing to put their comfort and even their lives on the line for the sake of sharing the love of Jesus in some of the world’s most difficult and remote places.”

In an interview during the commissioning service, Danny Seay of Campobello will serve two months this summer with the International Mission Board (IMB) with thirty other students from across the U.S. in South Asia.

Seay's team will be working primarily with a family that is currently serving there“to help engage as many people as possible to find out which people groups are interested in the Gospel and to plant that seed to connect them with the family to continue to minister to them,” said Seay.   

A team of nine NGU students was also interviewed during the commissioning service that will be sharing the gospel in New York City for the North American Mission Board (NAMB) through the Generation Send program.

The team asked for prayer “for humility and boldness as they minister to the people in a place that is pretty dark," said Nathan Levi.

The New York Team members are Kaylie Givens of Fort Bragg, NC; Glenna Hallinan of Sumter; Davey Kesey of Fort Mill; Kendall Knight of Lancaster; Hunter Lee of Boiling Springs; Nathan Levi of Zirconia, NC; Zack Milsaps of Columbus, NC; Conner Skiles of Fort Mill; and Ryan Stanley of Pelzer.

“We need to pray for these students as they say “yes” to God’s call to take the gospel to the nations,” McWhite said.
