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.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: All international trip participants must be vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus.

The Bevin Center is working with the Campus Clinic to ensure proper and secure handling of your data and will communicate the procedure for demonstrating your vaccination status shortly.
