Missions, Service and Public Life strives to shape Baylor's faithful engagement with Waco and the world. Our hope is to make a better world together, by integrating faith, service, and learning.
We provide opportunities for students to love their neighbors by deepening human connection, cultivating self-discovery, developing a healthy worldview, and equipping servant-leaders.
The Good Neighbor Initiative
The Good Neighbor Initiative is our guiding strategy that drives our efforts to connect people to work collaboratively to solve global issues, and become better leaders and citizens.
The Good Neighbor Initiative is comprised of projects and programs that focus on our commitment to love God, and love our neighbor, while learning how to be a good neighbor.
Good Neighbor Initiative programs seek to:
Cultivate self-discovery and human connection
Amplify hope, healing and wholeness for our global community
Encourage love and compassion in our daily lives with others
Global Missions teams are faculty-led, team-based opportunities to grow, lead, and serve while immersing yourself in different cultures. These global experiences provide transformational opportunities to integrate your faith, service, and learning in more than 20 destinations across the U.S. and the world.
Local Ministries partner with local churches and organizations, to engage, love, and serve the greater Waco community. Through Urban Missions and Youth Ministry Teams, students discover their calling, and connect with their passion, whether that's youth ministry, teaching ESL classes, or caring for the elderly.
