Missions

Our purpose at the Bevin Center for Missions Mobilization is to promote, prepare for, and participate in missions.

To that end, we support faculty-led ministry and mission trips for our Boyce-Southern community. We are deeply committed to Southern Baptist missions efforts, most notably those through our own North American Mission Board (NAMB) and International Mission Board (IMB), joining the labors of those men and women sent out from our sister churches.
