The Bob Jones University Musical Mission Team - Welcome to the Musical Mission Team Website
Following a mission trip to the USSR in 1990, Bob Jones III, president of Bob Jones University, envisioned new opportunities for evangelism in the Soviet Bloc.
He also recognized the drawing power of music, especially in cultures long closed to the Gospel.
He thus gave the impetus for the formation of a new BJU summer team to Europe with the twofold mission of using music as a tool of evangelism and teaching Biblical principles of music ministry in the churches.
