One of the unique features of Faith is the wide array of ministry opportunities available to students, both in the United States and in other countries.
Local Church Ministries
Your ministry opportunities start with your local church. Faith is blessed to have about 25 Baptist churches in the area from which you can choose. Students will have the opportunity to serve in children and youth ministries, music, outreach and visitation, and even preaching sometimes. Your local church will become your new family. Since the Faith faculty and staff are also involved in local church ministry, you may serve along side one of your professors!
Many Faith students spend part or all of their summers serving in camps and churches. Some go to camps to work as counselors or staff members. Some men go to local churches for their internships as a pastor or assistant pastor. Some students are selected to be part of the Faith summer teams that serve in camps all summer. What a great way to spend your summer!
Faith students make good use of their passports! During the summer students can participate on one of the school missions trips or plan their own missions trip. Faith sponsors missions trips to South Africa, Japan, and India. In the past couple of years students have planned missions trips to such places as Germany, Tanzania, Cambodia, France, Brazil, and England. Students also have the opportunity to spend a school year in Peru as part of the ARRIBA! program. This program gives students a year of college credit and firsthand experience in missionary work. Faith students are definitely involved in taking the Word to the World.
