Fusion: (The molding of two entities into one cohesive unit.) This program is designed to challenge a student’s approach to cross-cultural experiences. Students will be asked to wrestle with issues they are rarely exposed to and interact in a culture different from their own. The program is structured and designed to nurture the student’s prophetic imagination. This is one that compels individuals to critically challenge systematic structures and communicate God’s hope for restoration.

The Rio Grande Valley, TX: Are you bilingual? Do you have a heart for immigration?

Backpacking Trip: At the heart of the Fusion Program is a desire for students to be dislocated from their normal routines to become more aware of the ways that God is moving in and around them. Join this team, led by Matt Galiano-Williams, as they head to the wilderness. This Wilderness Pilgrimage will be an opportunity for you to get outside of your comfort zone and retreat from the busyness of routine.
Israel (Travel Course): Join our Religion and Culture department this May as they travel to Israel for the 2020 travel course. Encountering biblical stories in as near to their original geographic contexts as possible opens up the world of the Bible in ways that
reading the story alone may not. See some of the places that we read about in Scripture come alive as you experience the land of Israel and cross over into Middle Eastern culture.
