Conversation with the Radicals

Written by Maria Koppelberger. Media added by Sean McFarland. As a part of Global Impact Week, The Office of World Missions and Outreach hosted an evening event called “Meet the Radicals” at the Burritt fire pit. The Radicals represented various mission organizations located throughout the world. Inner City Impact focuses on underprivileged youth in Chicago, Mr. and Mrs. Church work in the Middle East, Blood:Water Mission works in Africa, and Wycliffe Bible translators work all over the globe. In addition to the representatives, Christy Dashiell, Coordinator of World Missions and Outreach, several outreach-minded student leaders, and a variety of students came to join the conversation. Nathan Hood, President of GCSA, got a fire started in the fire pit, Christy brought drinks from Jo’s, and we all settled in for a great time of reflecting on missions work.
