Work alongside NC Baptist men and the Eastern Baptist Convention of Cuba by volunteering to help run a Sports Camp.
Work with Living Hope, where "ministries seek to impact South Africa's Cape Peninsula with a holistic approach that effects spiritual, physical, economic and political change." Includes working with children in Barcelona Orphanage.
Through Campus Ministry's continuing partnership with the Union Mission of Roanoke Rapids, volunteers helped the Mission to advance its cause of rural poverty relief by working on meal distribution, maintaining the Mission, and participating in community activities.
Light construction and maintenance was done at the Istituto Biblico Evangelico Italiano. The team prepared the facility for summer camp sessions and also worked with the Missionaries of Charity in Rome.
We worked with the Christian Activity Center to minister to marginalized children and youth, including tutoring, homework, computers, recreation and games, and just hanging out. The team also helped with preparations for the Center’s annual Santa Claus program and Christmas gifts distribution.
We worked with the Missionaries of Charity in Kolkata, (formerly Calcutta) India assisting them as they care for orphans, the sick, the dying and those with special needs. In addition, offered food/fruit to the poor on the streets of Agra, India as we visited the Taj Mahal.
The team worked with the North Carolina Baptist Men to help build hope and homes for residents living in and around Robeson County, the poorest county in NC. Construction work was the primary mission of this trip, as well as building relationships with homeowners and residents in the community.
We helped identify needs, both physical and emotional, through work at the Union Mission of Charleston, WV. Building relationships, serving and preparing daily meals, and cleanup of the facility were included in the work that was done on the trip.
We served at Living Hope, where “ministries seek to impact South Africa’s Cape Peninsula with a holistic approach that effects spiritual, physical, economic and political change.” The team also worked with missionaries in several local townships around Cape Town, helping with a community garden, working at a school for children who have developmental and physical disabilities, and helping at an orphanage with children who are living with HIV/AIDS.
This was an urban ministry experience organized through CSM (Center for Student Missions) where students partnered with several churches and non-profit organizations in the Nashville area to serve economically, physically, mentally, and spiritually poor people in the city. The group was housed in a local church, ate at several local ethnic restaurants, and learned about the serious issues and problems facing the city. Each day, students were plugged in with various "indigenous" ministry sites and became part of the solutions for the city. For fun, the group ate out at the Hard Rock Cafe, went to a folk-rock/indie concert of an up-and-coming local band, and made a several visits to a local coffee shop.
In Atlanta, a team of students worked through the Mission Partner organization and World Relief to serve refugee families that have been relocated by the US government from Nepal, Bhutan, and other countries that are experiencing periods of unrest. The students were able to serve a handful of the 5,000 desperately needy Nepalese/Bhutanese families currently living in Atlanta. The team also enjoyed eating out together at The Varsity, which claims to be "The World's Largest Drive-In," and went to see a Nashville Predators hockey game.
A team of undergraduate and graduate students traveled to Hungary for a third consecutive summer to work with local missionaries to host a youth English camp for students of the marginalized Roma people in Hungary. In addition to helping the students with their English development, the Campbell team played games and music as they built meaningful relationships with the Roma students.
