Acts Project sends students around the world
May 01, 2012
Acts Project is coordinating international experiences for 14 Bryan students--10 will spend their summers overseas completing internships for their Acts Project class in missional living. Four will be student teaching overseas during the coming fall and spring semesters.
Internships Overseas (Summer 2012)From mid-May through August, students will be putting into practice the concepts they studied in class this spring as they travel to locations in England, India, Ireland, Zambia, France, South Africa, and the Middle East.
Assistant Director for Faith and Mission Danielle Rebman explained that the Act Project is designed so that “students of all majors can see what their chosen course of study or profession looks like in a ministry context. Each field assignment is carefully chosen, considering how the field's needs, culture, and staff can employ and develop the student's skills and gifts, and vice versa.”

- Jeremy Brandon, a May graduate with a business administration degree–London, England
- Gerleen Dineros, a rising junior music and communications major–Birmingham, England
