Maclellan Scholars Class Trips


Class of 2016 | China

Class of 2016 Maclellan Scholars


In May of 2013, our Mac class went to Beijing and Shanghai, China. We were in Beijing for ten days and Shanghai for four days. During our time in Beijing, we got to experience many different aspects of Chinese culture including trying different foods, visiting historical sites, and riding on the extremely crowded subway every day. We also went to went to an orphanage just outside of Beijing for a few days. This was a private facility that housed and took care of kids that the government orphanages wouldn’t take. Many of them had some sort of mental or physical deformity. We stayed there for a few days and hung out with the kids and did some grounds work for them. For the last part of the trip, we went to Shanghai for four days. While there, we were guided around by a missionary couple who took us to different historical sites and also gave us more insights into the Christian church in China.

Class of 2017 | Turkey

Class of 2017 Maclellan Scholars


In May of 2014, the Mac Scholars freshman class took a trip to Turkey. Our group spent one week exploring the sights, history, and religions of Istanbul, one of the oldest cities in modern history. We had the privilege of worshipping with a local church and spending time with the pastor and various members of the congregation throughout the week as we toured the city and visited various cultural and religious centers. Trips to various mosques and conversations with local Muslim leaders were events that stuck out to many members of the group as informative and eye­opening. During the second week of the trip, our group traveled to Cappadocia, where we visited early church sites and ancient homes carved out of the sandstone walls. Later in the week, we flew to the area that contains the ancient town of Ephesus, where we toured sights mentioned in Scripture and also got a firsthand look at local culture, including the making of Turkish rugs.

Class of 2018 | South Asia

Class of 2018 Maclellan Scholars


In May of 2015, the freshman Maclellan Scholars traveled to South Asia. While there, we learned firsthand about slum industries, consumer markets, urban churches, rural churches, justice interventions, other religions, spiritual meditations, government operations, cultural taboos, core values, family communities, life expectations, and so much more. Moments of growth occurred during planned activities but also on bus rides, restaurant conversations, and shopping excursions. As our senses were invigorated by foreign sights, smells, and tastes, our minds and hearts were enlivened with questions and ideas. With each temple visit or monument tour, we found ourselves asking better questions and probing deeper beneath the surface of people, places, religions, and cultures. We left South Asia feeling like we had learned so much and want to learn so much more.
