Mission Work

While abroad, students will be partnered with a mission mentor who will help them get involved with ministry opportunities and connect them with a local church and the Christian community in Glasgow and Stirling. The local mission mentor in Scotland is Mike, who is also the resident director for Glasgow and Stirling. Students will meet regularly with Mike for prayer, reflection, and spiritual accountability; the spiritual support and opportunities will make their time abroad transformational! 

Ministry opportunities in Glasgow are diverse, address the city’s needs while supporting and working through existing ministries, and can include campus outreach through University & College Christian Fellowship (UCCF); partnering with local churches such as St. George’s Tron Church in the city center, Re:Hope Next Generation Church, which has a focus on reaching young people, or Upper Room House Church, which has a focus on reaching refugees; or partnering with a charity such as Glasgow City Mission. Opportunities through these can include children/teen’s ministry including a homework club, homeless ministry, arts & crafts ministry, English clubs/conversational English, asylum & refugee support, music/worship ministry, prayer ministry, student ministry, charity events, Bible study groups, service projects, student evangelism, and outreach events.  

Ministry opportunities in Stirling can include campus outreach at the university through Navigators, getting involved with a Christian sports-based ministry, Christians in Sport, and partnering in other ways with local churches, such as Cornerstone Community Church, who are active in the community. Opportunities through these can include student Bible study ministry, summer student equipping conference, Bible training hub support, learning community support, campus events including sports events, supporting the campus CIS team, teen/children’s ministry, prayer ministry, and other student ministry.
