The purpose of the Mission Minded Students (MMS) group is to promote missions - including awareness, support and involvement in mission organizations and opportunities - for Concordia students. The MMS group holds meetings, invites guest speakers, and promotes opportunities for local, domestic, and international mission activities throughout the school year and summer.
Besides attending meetings and hearing from students or missionaries on their mission experiences, you'll have the opportunity to participate in the Beautiful Feet Mission Conference held annually at one of the Concordia campuses.
You can also participate in on campus outreach activities like packing shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child, putting together health kits for children, or distributing blessing bags for homeless individuals. You can also go farther, by joining a team to serve in places like Alaska, Africa, Guatemala, China, Poland, Uruguay, etc.
Are you planning to serve abroad? Do you want to have a better sense of truly helping when serving within other cultures? Or do you just want to be more aware of potential cultural differences that could impact interactions?
In this presentation, Dr. John Mehl shares his expertise in missional leadership to help participants:
- Consider cultural awareness and understanding of cultural differences
- Follow God’s lead vs. personal desires
- Develop action plans for personal preparation
