describe the imageRichard Blake, associate professor and librarian at Waynesburg University, will lead three students across the globe to Taipei, Taiwan Saturday, May 12, through Thursday, May 30. Once there, the Waynesburg students will serve alongside students from Christ’s College.

Christ's College, founded in 1959, provides a Christian Liberal Arts Education for Chinese students. The goal of the college is to build a strong Christian faith in the lives of students and to provide them with a solid academic foundation, according to Christ’s College website.

Waynesburg University students will have the unique opportunity to witness and serve as well as observe the Christian faith in a new culture.

Service projects include leading worship, working with children, working with adults in a “house church” and more.

“The three young men will live in the men’s dormitory for the first week at Christ’s College, Taipei, and will interact with students to learn about and participate in Christian witness and service done by Taiwanese students and churches,” said Blake. “They will also attend some classes and lead a chapel service.  Subsequently, they will stay with host families in different churches and participate in their local mission activities and worship events.”

Students participating in the trip include:

•    Ryan Smith, a sophomore biblical ministry studies major from Bridgeport, Ohio (Bridgeport High School)
•    Robert Parise, a junior biblical ministry studies major from Moon Township (Moon Area High School)
•    Kyle Digiandomenico, a sophomore psychology major from Martins Ferry, Ohio (Bridgeport High School)
