An MBU tradition continued this year as students gathered around the American flag pole outside the Administration Building for “See You At The Pole.” Students gathered to sing and pray at 7 a.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 28.
AMP campus ministries took a group of students up to Lake Williamson in Illinois for their annual Fallout Retreat, the weekend of Sept. 16. Over 20 students attended, including the MBU Chapel Band and guest speaker Curtis Gilbert, pastor of The Journey Church Metro East. The weekend was filled with Bible study, worship and of course, a lot of fun.
