All University of Mobile students are provided the opportunity to serve on one of our Hands-On Ministry Teams. Currently, we have more than 90 students who serve weekly in a variety of ministries along the central Gulf Coast. Collectively, our students are serving more than 400 hours per week! The following are some of the teams you can apply to serve on:
Black Ops Team
This elite, highly trained team carries out classified ministry projects bringing light to people in some of the darkest places in the world. Outstanding applicants are selected through a separate application process.
We have a great relationship with the church community along the central Gulf Coast. Dozens of our students serve weekly in local congregations of various denominational affiliations.
Work to meet the physical and spiritual needs of people by assisting local nonprofit organizations, becoming trained in disaster relief, and developing ministries to people in the workplace. Members of this team work with the homeless and impoverished, provide disaster relief, tutor and mentor at-risk children, assist with medical care for the needy, and host numerous other relational outreaches.
Creative Media Team
Use your administrative, technical, and creative gifts to reach others with the gospel. Members of this team develop resources designed to develop others spiritually and market the work of the ministry teams.
