The Student Missionary Union (SMU) is the largest student-led missions organization in the United States. The 27 staff members and hundreds of volunteers are here to motivate and mobilize students to align their lives towards the completion of the Great Commission. SMU labors to mobilize students to catch a vision of God's desire for the world and passionately pursue their role in the incredible, real-life story that God began with Abraham and will end with the Messiah's second coming. Through prayer ministry, long-term and short-term missions, and Missions Conference, SMU desires to see each student walking in the fullness of the diverse ways God has created us to worship and serve Him.
