We are excited to announce the mission trips for Summer 2022 below! As a general rule, we want students to work through each "tier" before moving on to the next one so that by the time they graduate from high school they have a taste of what missions can look like in each context from their own city to the farthest reaches of the country.
In order to encourage our younger students to become involved in missions locally and in an effort to show them the many mission opportunities around our own city, our 6th and 7th graders go on an "in-town" mission trip, doing various projects around the city of Greenville. This will be a 5 day, 5 night "trip" where our Jr. High students will come and stay at the Youth Center overnight and be sent out each day to help with different ministries like Miracle Hill, Salvation Army or to do yard work for some of our Senior Saints & widows. We also help lead at MR's VBS program. Our hope and prayer is for God to transform us & those we serve for His Glory!
Tier 2 of our mission trip structure is a domestic trip for current 8th-12th grade students. This year our 8th-12th grade students will be headed to East Chattanooga, TN for 7 days to serve the ministry of Hope for the Inner City. Students will serve on urban ministry teams working toward Christian community development. This is the "next step" in our mission trip opportunities so that students have a growing maturity to love God and their neighbors.

The third tier is a trip for 10th-12th grade students with a cross-cultural emphasis. In the summer of 2019, we had the awesome opportunity to travel to Lummi, WA and partner with MTW as we served for 8 days. We stayed on a Native American reservation and worked with two missionary families that live there. We were blessed by the people of Lummi and it was a privilege to serve them through various service projects and bible clubs.

In order to be a part of a team for the summer of 2022, applications need to be turned in to one of the youth staff by Sunday, January 23, 2022.

We are praying that the Lord will lead and guide students to the right team and to call them specifically to one of these places to serve in the name of Jesus.
By applying, you are committing to 4 team meetings from 2:30-4 PM on February 27, March 27, May 1 and June 5. These meetings are mandatory for participation on the trip.
