Awakening Ministry Team
The Awakening Ministry Team is a student driven outreach of
Lindsey Wilson College. It is a team of committed, gifted student
leaders who travel in order to spread a message of spiritual
awakening through their talents and testimonies. The Awakening team
travels to local churches throughout Kentucky leading primarily in
Sunday morning worship services; the team also takes a yearly
spiritual journey to a destination within the United States, and
participates in missions throughout the world.
Over the past several academic years the Awakening Ministry Team
has represented Lindsey Wilson College while serving with
forty-three different churches and faith-based or community
organizations. These experiences have led the team on
adventures ranging from leading bible school in an orthodox parish
church in rural Romania to sharing music with patients at an AIDS
Care home in Kansas City. Awakening's central task of ministering
to congregations keeps them closer to home - but puts them on the
road two weekends a month during the academic year. The team visits
churches of various denominations, sizes, and styles across the
Commonwealth of Kentucky, sharing through the arts, music, and
testimony. It is a ministry that students are passionate about and
a reflection of spiritual growth at Lindsey Wilson College.
