External Programs Mission Statement

In light of the mission of Messiah College, External Programs provides students with developmental and experiential learning opportunities to respond to the challenges of their local and global communities.

To accomplish this we commit to:Ecuador team on worksite.


  • Reflect, as best we can, the character of God in our personal and public lives
  • Collaborate among ourselves and with our on-campus and off-campus constituencies
  • Nurture and empower students to become:
    • devoted followers of Jesus Christ
    • servant leaders
    • exemplary citizens
    • appreciative of, and open to learn from, other cultures
    • agents of personal and social transformation
    • lifelong learners
