Samford Christian Ministry and Spanish student Maggie Mulder and communication studies student Sarah South will present Global Voices: Ministry in the City of Hope for Ukraine 12:05-1:05 p.m. Nov. 18 in Divinity Hall North room 101.

The students–both Samford Global Missions Scholars–will share their ministry in L’viv, Ukraine, and discuss how that experience relates to their Samford studies. The Global Missions Scholars program is designed for incoming freshman students who sense a call to global missions as a vocation, but also may be interested in one of the many areas of study at Samford. Through mentoring, peer discussions, and cross-cultural immersion, the program assists students in achieving a balanced approach toward preparation for a vocation in missions.
