"This Week on the Hill" is a weekly roundup of campus news, announcements, and events from Southwestern Seminary and Scarborough College.

Global Missions Week: South Asia

From the heights of the mighty Himalayas to the crystal-clear water of the Maldives, South Asia is both awe-inspiring and heart-wrenching. It has the largest concentration of non-Christians on the planet. South Asia is home to more than 500 million Muslims and is the birthplace of Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, and Jainism.

Join us for our final Global Missions Week of the semester as we hear from IMB missionaries working among South Asian peoples. Come learn about how God is working and to see how you can be a part of reaching South Asians, no matter where in the world you are! Click here to see the schedule for in-person events and Zoom session registration.
