Chattanooga, TN

July 7-14

Tier 2 of our new mission trip structure is a domestic trip for 8th-12th grade students. This year, we are heading to Chattanooga, TN to work with Hope For the Inner City. The goal for this trip is to go to a city within the United States that is different for our students, but opens their eyes to the needs around our country, especially in the inner city. The trip will also serve as the "move up" date for 8th grade students into high school. Mission trips provide a unique opportunity for team bonding and it is our hope and prayer that this trip will serve as a great transition for 8th grade students into Sr. High. 

  • Who? Current 8th-12th Grade Students
  • Organization: Hope for the Inner City
  • Trip Cost: $450

The third tier of our new mission trip structure is a trip into another country with a cross-cultural emphasis. We want students to see physical and spiritual needs of people around the world and to get a taste of what Jesus meant when he called his people to go to all nations. This year, we will be serving with MNA church planters Rohan and Rebecca Crown in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada. Lethbridge is home to a large First Nations Reserve and is the landing place of immigrants from all across the world. So while Canada might not seem very cross-cultural, this city definitely is. Rohan and Rebecca have been serving in Canada since 2003 and have planted Amazing Grace Community Church in Lethbridge. Our students will be coming alongside Rohan and Rebecca in their ongoing ministry in Canada, helping their church run a large community sports and kids camp next summer.
