Life Pacific University students who intend to serve long-term on the mission field were invited to attend and participate in the Foursquare Global Leadership meeting at the Foursquare Main Offices in Echo Park, California alongside the Foursquare Missions International Training, Deployment, and Care team.
Kristina Stover, the Director of Career and Global Engagement at LPU, says that “When students have the opportunity to rub shoulders with those on the field and in global leadership, we see their understanding, passion, and network grow. We value our Foursquare heritage, and know this strategic partnership is essential in deploying more global Foursquare leaders for the harvest!”
These LPU students represented LPU at this FMI luncheon:
- Samantha Romo – a member of the LPU El Salvador team.
- Sostenes David Morales – a member of the LPU El Salvador team.
- Collin Barry – Evangelized across Europe with Circuit Riders and a member of the LPU El Salvador team.
- Brianna De La Huerta – a member of the LPU El Salvador team.
- Ethan Schmoll – interned with an FMI missionary in Poland.
“My time with the leaders was very impactful and at the same time very fun, it was awesome to see a group of people who had so much authority wear it with so much humility and be warm and welcoming!” says Collin Barry on his experience with the FMI team.
It is always an honor when Foursquare and Life Pacific University are able to partner together for Kingdom advancement.
LPU alum, Blake Mulock (’20), serves as the Administrator for the Training, Deployment, and Care Team of Foursquare Missions International, and shares that “We were delighted to see students take advantage of the opportunity to meet with our Global Associate Directors and Regional Coordinators as they shared updates about the opportunities and challenges in the areas they serve. I am excited to see the future partnerships that come from these special moments of connection!”
This was a fantastic opportunity for current LPU students to experience the leadership and influence of those who have been on the mission field before them. As they continue to prepare for long-term missions work through education at Life Pacific, through attending missions trips with LPU, and through being connected with FMI, these students will be empowered to serve God in their missionary callings post-graduation. Seeing these students pursuing God’s calling on their life to the mission field continues to reinforce LPU’s vision of transforming students into leaders prepared to serve God in te Church, the workplace, and the world.
