Missions Reality combines missions and academics into a year-long opportunity to gain a greater understanding of God’s heart for the nations and the role each believer can play in spreading the Gospel. It is a short term missions trip for which each Second Year Bible Institute student gets academic credit. Students are divided up into seven teams that will head to seven different destinations around the world, some within the United States and some internationally located, but all are meant to be cross cultural experiences. Preparation for these trips starts right at the beginning of the school year and culminates at the end of April when the trips take place. Training for students includes the Biblical perspective on support raising, how to make support presentations, and preparation for ministry on the field. On the trips, students will work alongside full-time missionaries to share the Gospel and meet physical needs.
These opportunities are for students have already complete at least the First Year program at the Bible Institute.
