May 15 - May 29, 2013
Regent University School of Divinity's Center for Global Missions (CGM) is delighted to offer the fifth annual mission trip to Ghana led by Dr. Cilfton Clarke. This trip is an intense cross-cultural and a truly missionary experience. During the visit, participants will have the opportunity of staying with a Ghanaian family to experience first-hand Ghanaian hospitability and culture. Participants will also have the opportunity to visit churches, schools, colleges, and villages and take part in outdoor crusades. All missionaries do not have to preach you will be encouraged to minister through whatever gifting you have. There will be many opportunities to share the gospel with some of the unreached people groups as well as to participate in teaching needy children and orphans. Through this experience, participants will grasp a better understanding of African Pentecostalism. There will also be opportunities to learn about the history of the slave trade and to visit slave castles.
This trip will be offered for credit as well as not for credit for students and for friends of the Regent community who wish to attend.
