What are you doing this summer? College students across North Carolina are being mobilized to reach their neighbors and the nations with the gospel. 

On this week’s episode of the N.C. Baptists’ podcast, Brandon Powell, student mobilization coordinator with Baptists on Mission, catches up with two college students who have accepted the call to serve on mission during their summer break. Listen to how God led Jordan Gibbs, a student at The College at Southeastern, and Sheridan Rice, a student at UNC Pembroke, to this decision.
