Eastwest Open Day:
Saturday 12 November!


Kia ora from Gordonton, Aotearoa! We wanted to send a quick email about our Open Day next month on Saturday 12th November.

Our team has been busy planning and we're excited about this opportunity to share our campus with the wider community. This is where we need your help—would you please consider sharing with your networks, and inviting your church community and friends to come along? We'll be running both on-campus and online events, so those who can't make it to the Waikato can still participate from afar.

Below you'll find graphics and links to the event on our website and Facebook page that you can share. We also have some limited print material available, so get in touch with us if you'd like some to distribute at your church.

As we have been planning this, a phrase keeps coming up: "From Aotearoa to the world". We're passionate about seeing Christians receive training to help them succeed in cross-cultural ministry, and we're so encouraged by our graduates who are serving all over the world. From little old Gordonton, Aotearoa, to the north, south, east, and west—praise God for His faithfulness to this college over the past quarter of a century!

Open Day

We'd love for you to come along! This will be a fun and informative day showcasing the college and keeping the kaupapa (purpose, goal) of missions alive and known. There will be two information sessions provided, starting at 11am and 2pm – about 1.5 hours each. There will be opportunities to interact with staff and students, share refreshments, explore the campus, along with various cultural activities. At the end of the 2pm session, there will also be a casual volleyball competition and sausage sizzle, for those keen to stick around. Details:

When: Sat 12 Nov at 11:00am & 2:00pm (both in-person and online)

Thank you. Truly, we can't do this without a team. We so appreciate every one of your prayers. Our desire is to equip and empower even more believers to share God's story among the nations. If there is anyone you know who could benefit from studying at Eastwest, please don't hesitate to connect them with us.

Also, if your church or ministry is looking for guest speakers, or you are interested in receiving our printed brochures, please get in touch—we'd love to hear from you. You are always welcome to pop in to see us at the college as well!

Thank you, and we hope to see you at the Open Day, either online or in person!
