BWM executive director to speak about missions

Students of all classifications and majors are invited to learn more about the mission field during the “How to Prepare for the Mission Field” ministerial class meeting today at 10 a.m. in Stratton Hall.

“We no doubt have many students interested in world missions who are not in the School of Religion or the seminary,” said Dr. Bruce McAllister, director of ministerial training and outreach.

Baptist World Missions executive director Dr. Bud Steadman will be addressing the ministerial class and those in attendance. Dr. McAllister said that Dr. Steadman has a long history of being missions-minded, going back to the time he was a pastor in South Bend, Ind., before taking the position as executive director at BWM.

“He brings a wealth of experience,” Dr. McAllister said. “He’s helping missionaries all the way through the process: recruitment, orientation, deputation and on the field.”
