Elective Seminar

SESSION 2 Tuesday, Dec 29th 10:45 AM - 12:00 PM (PST) STINT: Global Missions for a Year - Is it Worth my Time?


STINT (Short Term INTernational) is SOON Movement Global’s one to two year overseas internship in reaching every student, every campus and every nation until Jesus Christ is made known. In a world with uncertainty and chaos, we believe this is the time for children of God to bring the news of certainty and hope! Jesus says, "The harvest is plentiful but laborers are few" and we believe that we are all called to take part in going and making disciples. Will you be part of continuing to take the Gospel to them? In this seminar, you will find out how you can partake in ongoing global work of God through the stories of three previous and current STINTers.
