("MK" stands for Missionary Kid)
SNU's Missionary Kids group is now about 25 strong. Most of their parents are still active as cross-cultural Christian missionaries. They meet about once a month throughout the school year in formal and informal social activities. One highlight of the year is "Dinner with the President."
Faculty sponsor for the group is Dr. Howard Culbertson, former missionary who spent 15 years overseas (Italy and Haiti). His two children grew up on the mission field.
At SNU, we define an MK as someone who spent part of their growing up years living abroad in an expatriate missionary family. The fact that someone's parents may not currently be on a mission field does not mean that young person is no longer an MK.
SNU has scholarship funds available for all those MK's whose parents are missionaries under the World Mission Division of the Church of the Nazarene. There are also a few other endowed scholarships open to all MK's.
The SNU MK group is part of a larger fraternity of Missionary Kids: International Mu Kappa Organization
