Participate in the Showcase
Concordia University Irvine’s Great Commission Showcase is open to all Christian undergraduate students who have participated in a university-sponsored mission project or short-term mission trip. The winner of the showcase receives a cash prize, and a matching reward for the non-profit ministry of their choosing.
Students who wish to participate in the Great Commission Showcase will secure a faculty member who is willing to mentor you through the Showcase experience. Working with that mentor, students will contact Professor Mark Siegert to express their interest.
A complete entry in the Showcase includes 3 components that will be judged by a panel comprised of university leadership:
- A reflection paper of 3500-5500 words. The research paper includes cultural and economic factors about the field, anticipated challenges, and what the student learned about their own faith.
- Participation in the Great Commission Showcase Poster Session
- Finalists will give a 10-15 minute oral presentation
