As part of World Awareness week, 18 organizations will be displayed at the John Brown University Fall Missions Fair in Walker Student Center Nov. 6-8.

“There are many returning organizations this year, but some are new, including a few which primarily deal with children across the world,” said Chris Cole, missionary in residence. “[The fair] is aimed at educating and increasing the awareness of missions opportunities.”

Cole also said that the fair will be chance for students to be involved with missions, something Cole considered integral to Christian life.

“We should love what God loves, and God loves the world,” said Cole. “Truly living like Jesus is to live a missional life.”

Cole added that the various organizations present an opportunity to see outside the bubble.

“The missions fair ... exposes [students] to what God is doing around the world,” said Cole. “[It helps] to ... get a much bigger vision of God and how he allows us to join him in rescuing people from darkness both in Northwest Arkansas and across the globe.”
