During MEW, you'll have the chance to meet missionaries, learn global news, and widen your perspective of missions though:

  • Seminars: Throughout the week, missionaries will be conducting various seminars. These will be held in numerous locations on campus. Sometimes professors offer extra credit for seminars.
  • Special MEW Events.
  • Missions Fair: Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 9 am to 2 pm there will be a Missions Fair in the Bawcom Student Union (2nd Floor). This fair will include all of our missionaries, international and national agencies, and local mission opportunities. This fair is a great time to visit with the missionaries and receive tangible ways to begin personally fulfilling the Great Commission, both locally and internationally.
  • Chapel: It is held in W. W. Walton Chapel at 10 am and 11 am on Wednesday.
  • Church Engagements: Missionaries will be in local churches during the week.
  • Classrooms: Missionaries have been invited to speak in various classrooms.
