MNU has lots of wonderful ministries that give students the opportunity to go into the community and serve others.
To be honest, I’ve been to a few ministries, but haven’t found time in my schedule to regularly commit to attend a ministry.
Last week, I was hired to create the MNU Ministries launch video for this Spring 2016. It was such a blessing to me because it allowed me to hear impactful stories from students who have been investing in ministries for a full semester. It’s encouraging to know that there is a group of students at MNU that devote time to ministries every week.
I love attending a school that equips students to serve in the community, and do it with the passions and talents that the Lord has given them. There are many different ministries, which I’ve listed below in case you’re curious about them.
LOL (Loving on Littles) – A group of students that goes to an apartment complex and plays with children.
Deep Cries Out – An anti-human trafficking ministry that educates themselves, brainstorms ways to help, and prays for the victims.
Freedom Fire – A group of students that goes to a community center to play with children and tell them the Gospel.
EMT (Emergency Mission Team) – This is a new ministry this semester. This group will be available for any “emergencies” that come up in the community.
SMILE (Students Ministering in the Lives of the Elderly) – This group of students goes to a nursing home and sings hymns to the elderly.
Center of Grace – This group of students goes to a soup kitchen and serves people in the community.
I’ve attached the video below so that you can hear from the students yourselves. I hope that you’re inspired and encouraged like I was!
If you’re an MNU student, it’s never too late to sign up for a ministry, or simply attend for a week.
If you’re not an MNU student yet, this is what you have to look forward to! A university with a passion to serve, that encourages and equips students to go out and be the hands and feet of Jesus.
