Ministry & Co-Curricular

service

 

Departments such as Athletics, the Office of Christian Outreach, the Office of Multicultural Development, and the Student Activities Office offer many service, ministry and co-curricular opportunities, usually during spring break and summer.


SPRING BREAK

Honduras Project
Our Mission: Honduras Project is a Christ-centered community that seeks to serve the Lord by encouraging, building relationships and working with the people of Honduras. This project exists because Christ first loved us and has called us to love him and to love others, and springs out of the belief that Christ's love is holistic and cares about physical needs as well as spiritual needs.
2018 Theme: The theme this year focuses on welcoming one another. Just as Christ has welcomed us into His saving grace and redeeming work, believers are called to welcome each other to bring glory to God. This vision prompts an attitude of humility and open-handedness as we seek to love and serve God and others.
2018 Verse: “May the God of endurance and encouragement grant you to live in such harmony with one another in accord with Christ Jesus, that together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God” - Romans 15:5-7




BreakAway 2018 Opportunities

Our Mission: BreakAway Ministry creates opportunities for personal transformation by having staff, faculty, and students minister together during Spring Break.
Our Vision:  BreakAway Ministry strives to provide each participant with the experience of learning how to serve with compassion and humility alongside ministry partners, by faithfully meeting God where He is already at work.
2018 Verse:
"Only fear the LORD and serve him faithfully with all your heart. For consider what great things he has done for you." 1 Samuel 12:24 





SUMMER
 
GUP

Our Mission: Transforming students by raising their awareness of urban issues and mobilizing them to live out the incarnational gospel in cities around the world.
Our Vision: GUP seeks to cultivate a culture of humility and service by providing students with opportunities to come alongside and learn from urban communities. We also seek to dispel myths and stereotypes related to urban issues by planning educational, campus-wide events for the Wheaton College student body.
2018 Verse: "If you pour yourself out for the hungry and satisfy the desire of the afflicted, then shall your light rise in the darkness and your gloom be as the noonday. And your ancient ruins shall be rebuilt; you shall raise up the foundations of many generations; you shall be called the repairer of the breach, the restorer of streets to dwell in." (Isaiah 58:10, 12).



OCO SMP

Our Mission: Mobilizing and equipping students to partner with the global church and to make known the Kingdom of God among the nations.

2018 Verse: "Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your siritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with the Lord's people who are in need. Practice hospitality." (Romans 12:10-13)

2018 Verse: “Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers a multitude of sins. Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God's grace in its various forms." (1 Peter 4:8-10)
