What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

DA Urban Plunge

Bring your group on the ultimate urban mission trip! Spread the Word of God and the love of Jesus on this weekend-long Join-A-Plunge trip with eternal significance. Experience new cultures within the USA, work with the homeless and those in need, discover your ability to serve others outside your comfort zone, discover God’s call for your life, and have life-changing impact within local communities.

For 10 years Christ For the City International has been sending people into the inner-city to transform lives and cities for the Glory of God. The Urban Plunge sends over 1,500 youth every year into 7 different cities within the United States: Chicago, Dallas, Omaha, Lincoln, Sioux Falls, Des Moines, and Kansas City. We also offer a Refugee Plunge in Lincoln.

We arrange all the details, partnering your group with 6-10 different ministries, which allows participants to discover how God is calling them. In addition to planning the schedule, we also take care of the food and accommodations for your trip at a very affordable price. Your team will also be accompanied by a trained facilitator, who will encourage and debrief your youth in how to live lives of purpose, challenge, and incredible fulfillment for the Lord. For this trip, we will provide transportation to and from ministries during the Plunge.

Here are some possible ministries you could serve at during your Urban Plunge:

RESTORATION MINISTRIES

Our goal is to restore hope to people while bringing lasting change to the community. Through 22 programs, we provide life-changing opportunities to at-risk underprivileged youth, men and women with histories of addiction and families struggling in poverty. An addiction Recovery program, food pantry, after-school program and day camp are a few of the programs.

As a part of this ministry, your group will be helping with many aspects of the ministry, including the food pantry, thrift store, and the after-school program.

JONES COMMUNITY CENTER

The Jones Community Center which provides after school tutoring and ESL programs. It also has a local food pantry and small clothing thrift store for the community.

As a part of this ministry, your team will assist with homework help, crafts, games in the after-school program, as well as help in the food pantry and thrift shop.

MY JOYFUL HEART

My Joyful Heart endures to be a positive influence by providing basic needs, school supplies and holiday gifts for children in need until their situation improves or they move from the area.

As a part of this ministry, your group will assist with donations and packing bags for the children that the ministry serves.
