Missions Fair


September 25-27, 2012

Re:Focus on what’s important. Go Global Missions Fair will show you how you can impact your world by exposing you to inspiring speakers and missions agencies.

The Go Global Missions Fair serves to introduce Samford undergraduate and graduate students to the variety of organizations through which they can serve God cross-culturally. Most of the organizations who will visit us during the Fair will recruit students to serve internationally (some domestically), ranging from 1 week to their entire careers. In addition to exhibition times where representatives from agencies will be present to meet with students, the Mission Fair will also include times of worship and learning about the missional God.
