Carson Center for Global Engagement to host "Beyond Borders" on Feb. 20-25

The Carson Center for Global Engagement is sponsoring Beyond Borders, a week at Tabor College that celebrates and explores what God is doing worldwide through its students, alumni, and more.

The events, set for Feb. 20-25, are free and open to the public. 

“From the inner city to the far reaches of the globe, God is at work in many ways,” said Craig Jost, director of the Carson Center for Global Engagement. Beyond Borders will explore ways we engage in God’s great work through business, full-time ministry, or volunteer work. Our prayers are these events will inspire, encourage and equip our community to better engage with God in His mission.”

A Quilting Silent Auction will launch on Feb. 13 at 4 p.m. (CST) and run for two weeks. Items will be displayed in the Ebel Gallery in the Shari Flaming Center of the Arts and can be found online at
