Greenville, S.C. (October 14, 2013) – Bob Jones University will set aside the week of Oct. 21-24 to focus on the work and importance of missions. This year’s theme, “Expect great things from God. Attempt great things for God,” comes from William Carey, missionary to India and widely regarded as the father of the modern missions movement.
The daily chapel service, held Monday through Thursday at 11 a.m. in the Founder’s Memorial Amphitorium on the BJU campus, will feature missionary speakers.
Dr. Troy Manning, chief language consutlant for Bibles International in Grand Rapids, Mich., will speak Monday and Tuesday. Rev. Ashish Majmundar, who serves with Professionals International and Gospel Fellowship Association in India, will speak Wednesday and Thursday.
Over one hundred representatives from over fifty mission organizations will be on campus to talk with students and those interested in serving on the mission field.
The University started Missions Emphasis Week in 1989 to impress on the students the demand of world evangelism. The command to “Go into all the world and preach the Gospel” is for all of us. Missionaries will show the need for workers – both full-time missionaries and business professionals – and introduce their organizations to students who want to use the gifts God has given them in serving Him in a variety of ways on the mission field.
