Ministry & Co-Curricular
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.
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.
2019 Theme: This year, the theme of Honduras Project focuses on the idea of intentional remembering and reminding each other of the work that God has done as the champion our salvation. Also, we see this 40th year as one of commemoration and celebration of God’s work of redemption in the lives of our community in Wheaton along with that of our Honduran brothers and sisters. This vision evokes an attitude of gratitude and deep humility as we seek to glorify God for the gift of being a child of God and for His invitation into his work and partnership with the global church.
2019 Verse: “Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.” - Hebrews 10:23-25
