Missions Department

Welcome to the “Gateway to Service”!

Washington Adventist University is home to the longest standing collegiate missions program in the Seventh-day Adventist church. Beginning in the summer of 1959, Marlin Mathiesen, then a student at Washington Missionary College, began a rich tradition that has become customary among most Adventist institutions across our nation.

The Missions Department is committed to keeping the spirit of service alive. Each year we commit to four life-changing mission trips abroad and domestically. Locally, we serve in neighboring communities bi-weekly. Take a moment to  learning about our ministries, their leaders, and be inspired to fulfill God’s purpose for your life.
