Soccer Players Serve as the Hands and FEET of Christ

MBU sports team are often involved with various opportunities to give back to the St. Louis communities. One way the MBU men’s soccer team recognizes the value of serving as the hands and feet of Christ is through playing soccer each spring with special needs children as part of the SPENSA program.

Missouri Baptist University soccer players have helped with SPENSA-sponsored camps in St. Louis each spring for several years, and team members agree it is one of the most important outreaches they do as a team.

What Happens After Graduation?

It’s a question that has been presented to college students for as long as there have been colleges: What do you plan to do with your life after you graduate?

Sustaining the Nation’s Top Free Attraction

The St. Louis Zoo has made nearly every travel guide list in the nation of the top free attractions in the United States, but that key word, “free,” could change depending on how Tuesday’s proposition vote goes.
