"As aggies we believe that service is not something we should do, but something we will do. It is our duty as students of Texas A&M and followers of Jesus Christ that we serve others wholeheartedly. AMC has the honor of working with organizations like Still Creek Boys Ranch and the Special Olympics, as well as serving at Big Event and many other service events for several organizations annually. It is our privilege to serve Building A Future, an organization based in Tegucigalpa, Honduras who seek to provide education and care for impoverished and destitute children in their nation. We also take a Spring Break Mission Trip to Honduras (if travel restrictions allow) and spend a week serving alongside BAF. Service has always been a vital part of what makes AMC, and we look to continue service for the entirety of our time at Texas A&M." -Landon Sherman '16 - Service Chairman 2014-2015
Building A Future (BAF)
AMC has supported Jorge Mahomar and his non-profit organization Building a Future in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, since the spring of 2005. In a country of 7.4 million people that is noted as one of the poorest in the world and statistics that show 33% illiteracy and a 7.5% high school completion rate, Building a Future aims to bring kids in off the street and provide them with shelter, food, clothing, medical care, and an education. The money AMC raises for G.L.O.W 5k goes to this cause. For more information, please watch the video above or visit buildingafuture.org.
Still Creek Boys Ranch
Since 1988 Still Creek has rescued boys and girls from crisis environments and resorted them through Christian education. Resident students are places in a loving, safe, Christ-centered home and restore their lives through their accredited boarding school, family-style home environment, Bible-based counseling, TAPPS athletics, and much more. AMC visits Still Creek Ranch weekly and spends time playing sports, talking, and investing in the young men there. For more information about Still Creek Ranch, please visit stillcreekranch.org.
Guatemala Mission Trip 2015
During Spring Break 2014, 12 men traveled to Kingston, Jamaica and worked alongside Mustard Seed Communities, a ministry devoted to providing care to special needs and destitute children. The men did everything and anything that the team at Mustard Seed needed. This included spending time with children, morning feedings, building sidewalks, constructing a prayer garden, and many other service-oriented activities. Though the trip impacted each man in a different way, everyone walked away with a better understanding of what it looks like to love our Father and love on another. Check out some of the highlights below.
