Local Service Opportunities

Local organizations provide abundant opportunities for students to join God’s mission in Abilene. You can provide care for the vulnerable, combat poverty, seek justice, and contribute to the healing and flourishing of our community through local non-profits and development projects.

Join a Local Church

We strongly encourage students to participate in a local church, where you will grow individually while taking part in God’s greater mission. A community of Jesus-followers manifesting life together is the literal fulfillment of the Lord’s prayer: “Your Kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.”

Missions Students’ Association

The MSA sponsors events for all students from every major who are interested in God’s mission, including weekly Missions Chapel. For more information on MSA activities, contact
