SEU is proudly ranked as one of the top 5 most missions-minded universities in America.
Follow God's call to the ends of the earth
We believe that mission work creates in us a desire to change the way we live and inspires us to share the Gospel for the rest of our lives. Through SEU Destinations, our missions movement, hundreds of students, faculty and staff travel the globe and serve locally each year.
43 mission trips
22,000 volunteer hours
Every year, dozens of student-led trips are held during school breaks, each with a unique purpose and location and all with one overall goal — to spread the Good News to the ends of the earth. Each mission trip is planned, evaluated, and carried through with the purpose of providing lasting help to the people who are served.
Since 2012, teams of SEU students, staff and faculty have worked with organizations around the world to produce documentaries about mission trips and various social causes. These films provide awareness to the issues presented and show how critical mission work is to the people and communities who benefit from these efforts.
Some of our student-leaders choose to work with established missions organizations to accomplish the goals of the trip they are leading.
We believe that loving our own city best prepares us to go out and love other cities. Local outreaches also provide an opportunity for students to serve consistently and establish relationships within our community.

Find a hurt, and heal it.”
