The Agapé Center for Local & Global Engagement develops, administers, resources and coordinates programs of service-learning, community service and missions, contributing to the mission of Messiah University to “educate men and women toward maturity of intellect, character, and Christian faith in preparation for lives of service, leadership and reconciliation in church and society.”

Your Gift Impacts Students & the Community

Students, faculty and staff work within the local community, as well as in communities throughout the world, building relationships and serving others. In 2017-2018, an estimated 98.6% of the graduating class participated in some form of community service through the Agape Center. There are many ways to support the work of these individuals through donations.
