GO Week Encourages Students to Think Globally

Cornerstone University will hold its annual GO Week Sept. 24-28. The week is devoted to informing and encouraging CU students to consider global opportunity trips.

“It’s our week in kind of the school calendar year to highlight what God is doing in our world,” explained Chip Huber, dean of student engagement and Terra Firma program director. “And then to hopefully provide both information and tangible opportunities for students to join God in what he’s doing in the world.”

Today the focus will be on study abroad trips with tables in the Corum with information on various trips. Bill Stephenson, who runs the study abroad trips in Ireland with John Brown University, will be the featured speaker in chapel.

Steve Hass, with World Vision, will speak Tuesday at 8 p.m. and in chapel Wednesday, Sept. 26.

He will speak about how Christians should respond to the world’s greatest global issues.

Jason Fileta, from the Micah Challenge, will speak at 5 p.m. on Thursday and in chapel on Friday about global prayer.

Two opportunities to support Night of Nets are available this week: the men’s soccer game at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 26, and the women’s soccer game at 7 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 28. All proceeds will go to purchasing bed nets to prevent malaria in Zambia.

Another popular annual event, Taste of the World, will be held Thursday, Sept. 27 at 7 p.m. in the Corum and hosted by the Global Service Office. Students will have the opportunity to celebrate different cultures by trying foods from around the world.
