Abarry Clubb Serving With Student.Go Summer Mission Project
This year more than 40 students will serve around the world, working alongside Cooperative Baptist Fellowship field personnel and Fellowship partners. Abarry Clubb, a native of Mars Hill, N.C., and student at Mars Hill College, will serve in Washington, D.C., this summer with Student.Go. Clubb will work alongside National Baptist Memorial Church in Washington, D.C. to lead a summer day camp program for neighborhood children.
Through the Fellowship’s Student.Go program, undergraduate and graduate students have the opportunity to spend a summer or semester involved in hands-on missions. Students serve around the world – from U.S. locations such as Arkansas, Miami and New York to international locations such as Africa, India and Slovakia. As extensions of the local church, CBF field personnel living in these locations provide opportunities for students to participate in holistic ministries.
“Students fill vital needs on the field,” said Amy Derrick, the Fellowship’s missional church specialist. “There are ministries that simply would not happen if these students were not there. We are amazed every year at the ways that God uses summer and semester Student.Go personnel in the lives of those with whom they minister. But we are equally amazed at how the Holy Spirit works in the lives of the students through these experiences.”
Student.Go provides a $1,000 stipend, secondary insurance, room and board and local transportation at the ministry site. For more information visit www.studentdotgo.org, www.destinationmissions.org, or contact Derrick at firstname.lastname@example.org.
CBF is a fellowship of Baptist Christians and churches who share a passion for the Great Commission and a commitment to Baptist principles of faith and practice. The Fellowship’s mission is to serve Christians and churches as they discover and fulfill their God-given mission.
