Impact the world

Our missional heartbeat has been going strong since 1902.

Global Outreach is a group of students who promote, pray and raise funds for Kingdom ministry around the world. We help the Northwestern community grow in understanding of God's heart for the nations to become globally minded followers of Christ. Here's how:

  • Raising money for annual spring and summer mission trips
  • Creating awareness for world events through Missions Week, letters and table tents
  • Hosting weekly prayer meetings where students can share burdens for world issues
  • Facilitating leadership to catalyze campus into action
  • Sending teams and individuals to serve here and abroad during Christmas, spring and summer breaks

We have recently traveled to China, South Africa, the Czech Republic, San Diego, Mexico and Alaska. This year, groups are traveling to Nepal, Guatemala and the Philippines.

Reaching out

"The missions trip I went on to Trinidad was challenging in several ways but mostly, it made me look beyond myself and really pour into others. I had the opportunity to meet some of the most beautiful people in the world and fell in love with the country."
