Mission Work

Scotland Ministry*

While abroad, students will be partnered with a Mission Mentor who will help them get involved with one of three ministry partners and connect them with a local church and the Christian community in Stirling. Students will meet regularly with their Mission Mentor, Mike Kurtyka, for prayer, reflection, and spiritual accountability; the spiritual support and opportunities will make their time abroad transformational!

Veritas students may have the opportunity to do campus outreach at the university with Navigators, get involved with a Christian sports-based ministry, facilitate student Bible studies, and partner in other ways with local churches, such as Cornerstone Community Church, who are active on the campus and in the community. Students will grow in their faith as they discover what it means to be an international missionary, serve others, and gain a global perspective. The Mission Mentor, ISA Scotland’s Resident Director Mike, disciples Veritas students in their experiences through prayer, reflection, and spiritual support as well as connects them to ministry partners and local churches. 

The International Mission/Service-Learning Practicum will enhance and help students internalize their experience, and provides a great opportunity to reinforce cross-cultural missions, and earn college credit. The course formalizes the student's 7-10 hours of ministry including: reflection activities, journal entries, and cultural research.
