Missions Strategy

February 23, 2015

Missions is an indispensible part of the student experience at Cedarville. The emphasis we give to missions is propelled by two facts that impact how we think about our priorities as an institution. Those two facts are the Gospel and the state of the world. The Bible teaches the Gospel is the news that all people have sinned and are condemned because of sin, but that God initiated redemption for us and has accomplished this redemption through the atonement of His own blood in the death, burial and resurrection of Christ. This news of the Gospel is beautiful, but it is only good news if it gets there in time. That is where the state of the world comes in. Of the approximately 7 billion people on earth, it is estimated there are over 2 billion who have no access to the Gospel. We think it is important to mobilize students to use their God given interests, skills, and education to live strategically for the sake of the lost being reached with the Gospel. One way we seek to prepare students to give, go, pray and mobilize for missions is through encouraging all students to take a mission trip before they graduate. We work with partners around the world to open opportunities for students to engage in God’s work. I am excited to share with you one new partnership our Global Outreach department has established working with unreached people groups in the nation of Turkey. I encourage you to take a few minutes to watch this video to see what God is doing.

CU LEADership Conference Update

January 26, 2015

We take seriously our role in equipping students to be lifelong leaders in their spheres of influence. It is our pursuit to equip students with a biblical vision for leadership before they graduate. The need for humble and convictional Christian leaders is clear in contrast with the surrounding culture.

One approach we take to accomplishing developing students into leaders in their Christian life and vocational preparation is through our CULead conference that took place on January 23-24, 2015. This year our students had opportunity to hear from two plenary speakers who are godly and qualified leaders in the Cedarville community: Lt. Gen. Reno, USAF (Ret) who serves as the Dean for the School of Business Administration and Dr. Rob Turner, who serves as the Pastor of Apex Community Church and Director of Cedarville's Master of Ministry program. These speakers shared with students their insights on leadership. Additionally, many Cedarville faculty and staff offered workshop sessions on topics that included: Leadership as an Act of Worship, Integrity in Leadership, Jesus and Leadership, and many more. The conference was organized around three distinct tracks for visiting high school students, Cedarville students currently serving in leadership positions on campus, and Cedarville students who desire to serve in leadership position on campus.

Leading well in our families, workplaces and churches is essential to proclaiming the testimony of Christ and is therefore a priority at Cedarville.  Please continue to pray the Lord will work in the lives of our students to raise up faithful leaders from Cedarville University.
