Jesus calls his people to make an impact in the world, particularly by our service to others. Learning to love and serve others is a very important part of the overall discipleship process. Students at Mount Carmel spend time every week volunteering with different organizations, and go on two ministry trips during the year.
Staff will assist students in choosing two or three different ministry placements. Students will serve in those placements for the entirety of the college year. These service times take place on specific afternoons, evenings, and weekends so that students can develop a regular schedule.
As part of our program’s service component, students participate in two ministry trips. The aim of these trips is to expose students to people groups that they may not naturally have contact with and to provide students with opportunities to interact with and hopefully have an impact. We want to help students grow in compassion for the “least of these”. Though subject to change, our most recent trips have been inner city ministry in Vancouver, BC and First Nations ministry in northern Alberta.
