Since 2000, thousands of Lancers have served nearly 400,000 hours in twenty countries on six continents. And each year, hundreds of learners have shared God’s love and His saving grace message of salvation through service to others. OLu Missions combines outreach and on-campus ministries with coursework as learners choose to serve in a variety of ways, including construction projects, disaster relief, elderly care, and children’s clinics. These experiences provide opportunities to learn techniques for effectively working across cultural, religious, and national boundaries while fostering positive mental health and well-being. The mission of Orange Lutheran is to help students internalize the Gospel message of salvation in Christ Jesus, and the Missions program offers a hands-on way to do so.
All dates and trips are subject to change.
Since 2009, we have partnered with Big Creek Missions in Bear Branch, KY in the Appalachian region to help with the ministry they do all year within the local counties. Our projects include construction, ministering to veterans, disabled adults, orphans, and more, doing everything we can to bless this community.
Over Spring Break, the OLu Theology Department partners with us to work in several countries throughout Asia. Some of those countries include Taiwan, Cambodia, Vietnam, Korea, and China, and the location changes each year.
Each summer, we partner with ministries, churches, individuals, and schools internationally to spread the gospel and deepen our relationships with Christ by doing His work. We are continually fostering relationships with groups in Ethiopia, Australia, Romania, Brazil, and Argentina. As such, trips to these countries alternate each year.
Twice a year, we partner with the Bishop Paiute Tribe and other groups in and around Bishop, CA. Since 2012, we have been working towards restoring relationships between the Native community and the surrounding area, as well as with Christians.
