What is SMU? from The Student Missionary Union.

Who We Are

The Student Missionary Union (SMU) is the largest student-led missions organization in the United States. We currently maintain a staff of 30 students as well as hundreds of student volunteers.


What We Do

Our ministry focuses in three primary areas: Biola, our City, and the Nations. Students from every background and skillset can live out the Great Commission in their lives through our Missions Conference, Impact Teams, Short-Term Missions trips, and many other opportunities.


Why We Do It

SMU exists to motivate and mobilize students to align their lives towards the completion of the Great Commission. Our desire is to consistently raise up generations of student leaders who passionately and obediently serve Jesus throughout their lives. God alone deserves the worship of all nations and all peoples and it is to that end that we labor.
