There are over 100 million university students in the world who represent a key component of the global culture. They are the future and hope of all nations. The opportunity is ripe for students from the U.S. to go to the nations and spread the gospel internationally. At UNCG, our strategic campus partnership is with East Asia. That means we commit to PRAY, GIVE, and GO. We have two venues for students to reach these partnerships with the gospel: International Summer Missions and STINT. We are currently partnering with locations in:
- The Dominican Republic
- Czech Republic
- Central Asia
- East Asia -- UNCG partnership sending location
An International Summer Mission is an opportunity to experience a new culture (sightseeing, food, people, and culture), to be involved in international ministry, and to work with a team whose common purpose is to make Christ known on the college campus. All of what we do internationally can give you great ministry skills to use back on campus.
On an International Summer Mission you will receive training in how to go about ministry in a manner that is culturally relevant and sensitive to your location, however it is assumed that you know how to share your faith. If you are not comfortable or do not know how to share your faith, but are going internationally this summer, you should ask a Cru staff at your campus to teach you. If there are no Cru staff on your campus, pursue training through your local church.
STINT, which stands for Short Term International, is a one-year commitment to tell students at our partnership locations about Jesus Christ. While on STINT you will be on a team that is responsible for beginning or continuing to build a movement of evangelism and discipleship at your location. Your main activities will involve sharing your faith, doing basic follow up, possibly leading a small group, planning retreats and weekly meetings, and training students to be leading the ministry after you have gone. You will spend time praying for these goals as a team and working together to make it happen. Grab a friend and go reach the world!
