The Halbert Institute for Missions, in a joint effort of Bible faculty and students will present Team Quest on Thursday, a short to pique interest in university-supported missions opportunities.
Dr. Sonny Guild, director of the Halbert Institute, said the goal of the meeting is to educate the ACU community about teams already in the mission field or planning to go.
“There’s going to be a showing of a documentary made about one of our teams that’s currently in Tanzania, Africa,” Guild said. “Our team that is going to leave soon for Zambia, Africa, will also be introducing other teams preparing to leave.”
There are several teams training through the Halbert Institute, and this meeting is a good opportunity for students to be introduced to members of those teams and hear their plans of action, Guild said.
There also will be a food tasting with several foods from around the world to give students a glimpse into the fields the mission teams will be entering, he said.
Shelly Tarter, junior theatre and technical design major from Shallowater, said studying abroad increased her global awareness and she is looking forward to hearing others’ stories from the field.
“I really enjoy getting to share my experiences abroad, and I think it’s awesome that these missions teams will be sharing with others, as well,” she said. ”
The meeting will take place at 6:30 p.m. Thursday in Hart Auditorium and the lower rotunda of the Biblical Studies Building. All students are welcome, and signups are not required.
