Incredibly Global

LeTourneau University has a long tradition of tearing down borders. From our humble beginnings, R.G. LeTourneau carried the Good News of Jesus Christ out of his home, out of his nation, out of his own comfort zone. Today, LeTourneau students continue this tradition in so many ways that it's hard to keep track of them all.

As we head into Spring Break week, our students are ramping up to serve around the country. They will be working on missionary aircraft in Ohio and North Carolina, doing construction in an extremely poor community on the Texas-Mexico border, using their computer skills to help a ministry in Colorado, and discipling and training teens in Alaska. And this is just what will happen next week.

Every day, LETU students, faculty, and staff are facilitating miracles. In labs. In classrooms. In offices. They are finding new ways of reaching every workplace and every nation for Jesus Christ. Our students are developing incredible inventions and tools that make a difference in our world.

The Office of Global Initiatives oversees LeTourneau University's vision to go into every workplace and every nation. Our Center for Global Service Learning oversees all of the major international student projects that are taking place at LETU. You can read more and watch a short video at the LETU website here. And check out just a small sample of the exciting projects that our students are doing here.

As you know, changing the world is not a cliche for LETU students. It is a reality.
