Spiritual Clubs

Mission Group

Missions’ Group began in 1983 to provide a venue where those interested in foreign and domestic mission work can discuss opportunities for service and learn about current mission trends. The club meets the first and third Thursday of each month at 8:00pm in the homes of the Missions faculty. Some meetings feature guests who speak on their mission works, while other sessions focus on missionary principles and skills. The club helps to formulate mission teams who share the same interests in various locations and missions as a whole. Over the past thirty years, several such teams have formed, going to serve in domestic sites as well as in countries around the world. The club contains students within various majors, as all students are welcome to join. For more information, please contact Mark Blackwelder at 731-989-6624 or at mblackwelder@fhu.edu.
