Spring Break Mission Trip - March 14-22
Coming up this Spring Break our High School students will be taking a mission trip to New Orleans, LA. We are excited about the opportunity to serve in this urban ministry setting.
Why are we Going?
In Jesus’ great commission He calls His followers to “go” and make disciples. 1 Peter 4:10 says, “Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others.” In Matthew 25:40, Jesus says “whatever you did for the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.” We are going to serve the people of New Orleans.
Who are we working with?
Our mission team will be partnering with YWAM New Orleans. (Youth with a Mission). YWAM New Orleans was established in the early 1980s and from that time have developed an extensive ministry to the city and people of New Orleans. Through programs like their Hope House, urban discipleship, disaster relief, and city outreach this organization has become a lighthouse of hope for this city.
What will we be doing?
YWAM facilitates over 50 mission teams annually that serve in homeless shelters, public schools, housing projects, nursing homes, and youth ministries. Our team can get a taste of city ministry through helping with disaster relief efforts, food distribution, playing and teaching children in low-income areas, feeding homeless and caring for the unfortunate, and/ or from sharing Christ on the streets of New Orleans through witnessing, counseling, dramas, dance and skits. Our team will be working in a variety of these efforts in order to best serve the city of New Orleans but also to provide a well rounded mission experience for our students and adults.
where will we stay?
YWAM has it’s own properties where they host teams. We will be staying in homes specifically suited to house large teams. Both lodging and most meals will be taken care of within their properties.
Who is this trip for?
This trip this spring break will be geared toward our High School Ministry. All current 9th graders and up are invited to join us for this trip. Adults and parents are invited (and needed) as well. Please consider using this week of your spring to serve others in New Orleans for Christ.
what is the cost?
The cost of the trip is $350 per person.
