"Hear this, all you peoples . . ." -- Psalm 49:1

An Introduction to Missions course assignment asks you to spend at least five hours during the semester publicizing and promoting a missions opportunity.

Activities to be promoted and publicized:

  1. SNU's mission trip opportunities like SIMS (recruiting is done in the fall; fund-raising in the spring)
  2. Mission Corps (formerly NIVS) -- year-long volunteers
    • Support of current volunteers (those serving right now)
    • Promote idea of going after graduation or between junior and senior years
    • Helping new recruits get ready
  3. Commission Unto Mexico (Work & Witness trip over the New Year's holiday)

Suggestions for promotional activities
