"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:

  4. Bulletin boards (one in display cases in religion building hallway and one in Commons near student mailboxes)
  5. Bulletin boards in local churches
  6. Cafeteria table tents
  7. Door hangers on room doors in dormitories
  8. Helping raise prayer support and funds
