Follow Summer SPRINT Teams Online

This summer, 50 SPU students are participating in the John Perkins Center's SPRINT program in one of nine countries around the globe. In trips ranging from two to five weeks, students are learning from and serving with local leaders, gaining experience in global ministry, and expanding their cross-cultural understanding. Information and updates on each of these trips can be found on SPRINT's website. Throughout the summer, we'll post pictures, stories, and video to help tell their stories. If you'd like to be added to any of the teams' prayer/update email lists, contact Coordinator of Global and Urban Involvement Owen Salle at owen@spu.edu. Select the link for the SPRINT website. More
