Global Missions Fellowship embarks on a ‘Quest’ for the nations.

By November 19, 2004

International (MNN)–There’s a vision aimed at mobilizing America’s college campuses into the missions field. The project is called ‘Collegiate Quest’.

Global Missions’ Fellowship’s Frank Banfill says students who participate in a short term trip make a profound, lasting impact. GMF’s current focus is on Latin America. “Our experience has been that for every North America that goes on a Global Missions Fellowship campaign, there will be three national believers mobilized to work with us. So that means that just by a college student going on Collegiate Quest, they’re going to triple their ministry.”

While on the field, students will personally engage the un-churched alongside local church members and their translator. Banfill says the “Quest” is about connecting with the Great Commission.

Students will be on one of approximately 30 teams who will be working in Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Guatemala, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay, and Venezuela in May.

Banfill explains that it’s about putting real action to faith and seeing it grow. “Now, you’re going to have excitement on the field and you’re going to have these individuals in these countries who will take ownership for their countries, step up and become better witnesses in outreach and really be focused on planting new churches in unreached communities.”
