PA Trip | July 31 - Aug 4, 2017 (7th - 10th Grade)
Approx. Cost: $450         Team Leader: Drew Williams
We will be attending Student Life Mission Camp at Eastern University. This will be a week where students have the opportunity to serve in a variety of different ways. The morning and afternoon will be for serving and in the evening we will have the opportunity to hear from Jason Cook, a nationally-known speaker and worship with the Brett Perkins Band. This trip is a great opportunity to grow spiritually as you serve others and as you get poured into as a team. We know that there are people in our home state that need to meet Jesus and we hope to accomplish this through serving and sharing.

 

NYGO | June 24-30, 2017 (9th - 12th Grade)
Approx. Cost: $1100         Team Leaders: Eric & Jen Gregory
The goal of NYGO is to challenge students to discover the differences between nominal Christianity and an ignited, passionate life that is driven by the Gospel. Each day is filled with challenging opportunities to share their faith in the parks and streets of NYC. Amazing New York City pastors teach apologetics and evangelism in the mornings, and the afternoons are spent in the parks and plazas sharing the Gospel. In the parks, you will have the opportunity to ask thought-provoking questions as a lead-in to sharing the Gospel. Each night ends with a corporate worship service.

 

United Kingdom | July 8-15, 2017 (11th & 12th Grade)
Approx. Cost: $1800       Team Leaders: Drew Williams, Eric & Jen Gregory
We will be working with UK-USA Ministries to serve in Sunderland, England. There we will work with a Sunderland Community Church and Axiom Sports doing local service and evangelism. The main focus of the trip will be running Camp of Champions, an after-school program at the local elementary school. We will be running a sports camp where students will have a chance to hear and respond to the Gospel. This trip will give our students the opportunity to see what spiritual poverty looks like while giving hope to those who need to hear the Good News.

Joni & Friends | July 31 - Aug 4, 2017 (Ages 16 and up) 
Approx. Cost: $495 + travel expenses       Team Leaders: Marcie Yoder

Joni and Friends Short Term Mission Trip is a unique opportunity to let God use your time, your hands and your heart to make an eternal difference in the life of a child, teen or adult with a disability and their families.

You may be a companion to a child or adult with a disability for the entire retreat. If so, it will be your job to be a friend, giving the gift of your time and love. STMs (Short Term Missionaries) eat meals with their assigned family and join with them in most program activities. Together, you will also enjoy a wide variety of Family Retreat activities – from swimming, boating, and mini golf, to hiking, zip lines and climbing walls. After some STM free time in the afternoon, you will rejoin your family for the evening meal and activities.

You may also serve in a program area assisting with art, recreation, music or the children, youth or teen programs. Program STMs will serve and/or lead in a specific program area during the day and evening (with an afternoon break).

Through the simplicity of your service, whether you are a family or program STM, you will have the opportunity to build relationships where you can share the gospel and help others find hope in Jesus.

No previous experience with disability? No problem. We fully train every STM before Family Retreat begins – there is nothing to fear!
