REACHING OUT IN SERVICE
At Indiana Wesleyan University, Christian service is an integral part of our students' college education. IWU ministry teams provide an opportunity for students to exalt Christ and point others to him as Savior and Lord while maturing in their faith and stewardship.
The Church Relations office recruits, trains and sends out a wide variety of music ministry, drama and recreation teams to minister at churches, Christian schools, youth retreats, summer camps and special events. Teams range in size from four-person drama and recreation teams to large ensembles such as the University Chorale and Wind Ensemble.

IWU's ministry teams may be scheduled at various times throughout the year:
Weekend Tours - After selection in September, music ministry teams travel from late October through April. Weekend tours generally stay within a radius of six hours from the Indiana Wesleyan University campus.
Spring Break Tour - The University Chorale and IWU Wind Ensemble travel on alternate years during spring break week. Groups are able to travel anywhere within the contiguous United States. Each group seeks to minister in churches, Christian schools and other venues within the tour area.
May Tour - Following the April graduation each year, one or more teams concentrate on ministry in Christian schools. Music teams lead chapel concerts as well as visit churches to tell the story of Indiana Wesleyan University through music and testimonies.
Summer Tours - Seven ministry teams are available to serve at camps and churches across America each summer. Worship bands and Christ in Action teams (which feature drama and recreation) are offered to enhance camp programming and provide positive role models for campers.
