Just because the summer break is here does not mean that ministry stops at ABC. What do students and staff members do over the summer months? The answer is easy. They serve the Lord around the world!
Missions professor Norman Johnston reports that we have students serving internships in Aruba, Australia, Bolivia, Canada, Ivory Coast, Japan, Jordan, New Zealand, and Peru. Students serving in these opportunities will spend more than eight weeks working with veteran missionaries to receive practical experience. Along with learning customs and rigors of missionary life, they are able to spend some quality time with men, women, and their children who have sacrificed to share the Gospel story abroad.
Four young men are traveling with Neighborhood Bible Time as evangelists. After an intense season of training, they will lead crusades in local churches designed to reach boys, girls, and teens with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The daily services consist of exciting games and Bible preaching. Pray for them as they travel and serve in these fast-paced weeks.
A number of students are serving in ministry internships in local churches in America. These eight-week programs are designed to expose our students to the many facets of local church ministry. In addition to preaching and/or teaching, these students receive personalized instruction from pastors and ministry leaders.
Christian camps are always a part of summer ministry for our students. Several are serving as counselors and program staff members in camps across the country. These opportunities usually begin at the end of May and continue until the beginning of August, leaving the students with a short window of time at home before they return to college.
In addition to these previously mentioned, many underclassmen are at home working a job to save for their school bills and faithfully serving in their home churches. Although this doesn’t seem to be as exciting as the things mentioned above, it is just as important as the rest. Whether our students are in a foreign land or at home, we want them to be “found faithful” (1 Cor. 4:2).
Would you take a moment today to pray for the student body of Ambassador as they serve the Lord during the summer months?
