The Missionary-in-Residence Program

The Missionary-in-Residence program at Union University provides temporary housing for career international missionary personnel on stateside assignment. The purpose of providing this housing is to meet the needs of the missionary family while providing awareness and education concerning global missions for members of the University and surrounding church communities. Through the ongoing presence and strategic involvement of international missionaries on campus and in regional churches, many are able to gain greater insight into God's work throughout the world through international missions.

By offering the Missionary-in-Residence Program on our campus, students can meet individually with missionaries and discuss life in another country, mission opportunities, or cross culture missions. Missionaries possess a wealth of knowledge about different cultures, world religions, and the peoples of the world. They assist the faculty, staff, and students of Union University in broadening their worldview, increasing understanding of global missions, and expanding our vision of using specific vocations for God's kingdom.
