How does a Christian university develop, equip and send the next generation of servant leaders?

McMurry in Motion is our answer to this important question. By developing opportunities for intentional engagement by students in national and international missions, McMurry hopes to provide transformational experiences for those serving and those being served. Christian author Frederick Buechner has defined vocation as “that place where your deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet.” As University students struggle with questions of vocation and calling, McMurry in Motion serves as a catalyst to discover where one’s deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet.

The MICAH Project, our five-year plan to execute this vision of seeing McMurry students, faculty and staff engage in creative missional opportunities around the world, was launched in the summer of 2010 as a group of students, faculty and staff traveled to Nanjing, China, on an exploratory mission. As of summer 2011, McMurry has sent teams to China, the Mexico border and Haiti, with plans to send another team to Haiti and India in summer 2012. Dr. Cindy Martin, who has been a faculty sponsor on numerous McMurry in Motion experiences, shares this when discussing the role an international mission experience can have in the holistic development of students. “Students come to college to learn, but at times like these the learning is more than just book knowledge. It is spiritual growth. They take the critical thinking skills that they learn in the classroom and wrestle with how to process such deep spiritual and life lessons. These are lessons that they will truly take with them for the rest of their lives.”
