Since age 12, Melissa Molano ’18 wanted to volunteer at El Refugio in Cartagena, Colombia. This year, she’s finally fulfilling that dream as an A. J. Gordon Missions Fellow.
As a Young Life Fellow at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, Kika Ghobrial ’16 will earn a Master of Religion and Young Life staff associate training—and simultaneously work to establish a chapter in Lynn, Massachusetts.
Thanks to the incredible generosity of donors, a record-breaking 462 gifts have unlocked 462 matching service hours in the surrounding community.
“Life is short,” says Sarah Snodgrass, director of local and global missions. “But we do have an obligation to use what we have been given well and wisely.”
On a Friday night in February, Gordon students and staff donned their finest formal attire and joined 70,000 volunteers around the world for “Night to Shine”—an exquisite prom experience for individuals with special needs.
