From Haiti to Germany, some 70 C-N students will spend their summer serving others around the globe.

On Tuesday, April 23, Carson-Newman University held its annual Summer Missionaries Commissioning Service at Jefferson City’s First Baptist Church.

“We always like to celebrate our summer missionaries,” said Chad Morris, C-N’s associate director of Campus Ministries, to those gathered for the service. “Today we support our students going out and being servants of Christ.”

This summer a total of 70 students will be serving as missionaries in 13 states and nine countries including: South Africa, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Ethiopia, Kenya, Guatemala, Greece, Costa Rica, and Germany.

The event’s speaker, Jeff Lovingood, next generation pastor of Hendersonville’s Longhollow Baptist Church, and a member of C-N’s Board of Trustees, reminded the C-N missionaries that they would not be alone as they go out.

“When you feel tired, stressed, or fearful remember to stop what you are doing and call out to Jesus,” said Lovingood, “because He is always with you.”

Carson-Newman’s summer initiative comes on the heels of the University’s spring SPOTS mission trips that saw 131 participants spend their spring break serving others across the state as well as Kentucky, Florida, the Carolinas, Georgia, Iowa and as far away as Guatemala.
