MARCH – MAY
Each student embarks on a missions journey. During the final three months of Transition One, you will join hands with pastors, missionaries and churches with established, dynamic ministries in foreign countries. This will be your opportunity to come along side experienced men and women who have given their lives in Christian service among people groups who know very little about the love of God in Jesus Christ.
