Alumnus makes missionary trip

By Sean Harvey ’10

Lynn graduate and current LU instructional technologist and adjunct professor Karlton Brown ’99, ’01, ’03, made a missionary trip to the country of Ghana recently. Currently studying for a Master of Divinity in the seminary at the University of Dubuque in Iowa, Brown took the trip with his fellow seminarians.

When asked what influences Lynn has had on him and his decision to go abroad and do missionary work, Brown said, “Lynn primed me to be very open and receptive. It is a unique place where we are blessed to not only learn side-by-side, but center ourselves in a nurturing community that encourages us to grow side-by-side.”

Brown and his group spent more than two weeks in Ghana and the surrounding areas of Accra, Akropong, Cape Coast, Kumasi, Osu and the Voltar Region, providing fiscal donations, textbooks and software to the schools in the area. While in the country, he traveled to different universities and seminaries to worship and interact with the locals.

This trip not only served as a religious and fellowship experience for Brown, but also an educational experience that will serve as research as he works toward his Master of Divinity and Ph.D. in organizations and management.
