Mission Studies Trips
Every other summer (summers of odd years) the PSCS Department of Christian Missions conducts a mission study tour to some part of the world. Students attend preparation sessions the semester before departure and receive six hours of course credit in Christian Missions. If you are an OBU student and would like to participate, check out the latest information below.
