Through food ministries for the impoverished, worship music with children and discipleship to adults, Gardner-Webb University students extended God’s love to the people of Latin America during a recent cultural immersion trip. Dr. Terry Casino, professor of missiology in the GWU School of Divinity, led the group experience through Peru, Colombia, Ecuador and Mexico, as part of the school’s Missiology and Intercultural Studies Concentration curriculum. “A missiologist once said that missions work is caught rather than taught. By going overseas this summer, divinity students had the opportunity to see for themselves what God is doing outside their comfort zone in North America and fulfill their own share of the Central Commission to make disciples of all nations,” Casino shared.
