Homecoming

JBU’s annual homecoming took place last weekend from Oct. 2-3.

Alumni from across the country returned to JBU to reconnect and have fun.

Donald Emanuel, a JBU alumni, enjoyed his visit and said it was good to see students on campus eager to learn. He hopes that alumni are passing on this positive attitude to the people they are interacting with.

 

Mission Trips

This fall break, there will be two mission trips heading out from JBU.

One group of students will go to Chicago, Illinois, from Oct. 16-20 as part of the Chicago Inner City Vision Trip. Students will learn about inner city culture as well as how to minister to people from that culture. They will also take part in work projects and visit homeless shelters and neighborhoods in African-American and Hispanic communities.

The Colcord outreach trip will be ministering in Colcord, Oklahoma, from Oct. 17-20. The Colcord team will assist in community development to help churches and neighborhoods in the area. The goal of the trip is to teach students how to use their unique skills and abilities to serve communities in practical ways.

Women’s Soccer

Last Saturday the women’s soccer team went up against Bacone and came out with an 8-0 victory.

Aspen Robinson and Jastin Redman each recorded two goals, while Anna Brown, Sara Lachance, Alex Fahr, and Anne Metz all scored as well.

This eight-goal margin of victory is the largest since the very same teams met on August 28, 2009, when the game ended in an 11-0 victory for JBU over Bacone.
