Before He ascended, Jesus left His disciples with this mandate: “Go into all the world and make disciples of all peoples…” Nearly 2,000 years later, that mandate remains unfulfilled, with an estimated 3.1 billion people in 4,500 people groups on earth who have never heard the name of Jesus Christ. As followers of Jesus Christ, we all have a role to play in seeing Jesus’ Commission fulfilled.
In 1886, 251 young men gathered for the first Northfield Student Conference. At the end of the conference, God had supernaturally broken in. 100 of the students committed themselves to world missions and what became known as the Student Volunteer Missions Movement was born. In a generation, this movement sent 20,000 missionaries overseas. Their watchword, “the evangelization of the world in this generation”, was a cry to fulfill the Great Commission in their lifetimes.
We believe it is time to finish what the Volunteers began, to raise up a new movement of college-students who will give up their lives to see the Lamb of God receive the reward of His suffering. Building on the legacy of the past, we see on the horizon a new Student Mission Movement to bring to completion what our forebearers began.
