An essential aspect of the Christian life and spiritual formation at WJU is developing a lifestyle of service. Outreach has been a long tradition at William Jessup University. As a Christ-Centered University, the focus of service stems from our belief that God has called each of his believers to be His hands and feet in the community and the world. This program gives students the opportunity to live out their faith with action. We believe service is an imperative part of the Christian Higher Education experience. Service enhances and enriches the student’s overall experience and is meant to be complementary to their academic studies and other WJU experiences.
WJU has a heart for the nations and desires to see all people changed by the Gospel of Jesus Christ. To that end, we want to raise up, equip and send our students to the ends of the earth to engage unreached peoples with the Gospel. Our vision is to see every student missionally engaged in serving both locally and globally.
WJU offers domestic and foreign Global Outreach trips each year. These are a great way to earn Spiritual Life Credit and we encourage every student to consider going on at least one Global Outreach trip during their time at Jessup. All Campus Ministries sponsored Outreach trips count for a semester of Spiritual Life Credit. Students generally raise funds through support letters to cover trip costs.
