What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

trashy

Bring your group on the ultimate urban mission trip! Spread the Word of God, and the love of Jesus on a weekend 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:

CORNERSTONE BAPTIST CHURCH

Safe, decent and affordable housing continues to be a challenge in the immediate community surrounding Cornerstone Church. Apartment complexes are often havens for drug dealing, drug usage, and other illegal activities that continues to destroy the community. Cornerstone Development Corporation has bought several apartment complexes and renovated them for use as a transitional housing for families, women coming out of prison, single mothers and women with HIV. The goal of acquiring these properties is to make housing available to families, those in need of assistance as they transition back into the community, and make the overall community a safer place to live and raise a family.

For a couple of hours, you might be ripping out walls, restoring walls, painting walls, swinging a hammer, or doing yard work in the neighborhood.

PARK MANOR

We’ll spend a couple of hours with the elderly. Some of them have been abandoned by their family and rarely have visitors. You’ll honor them with dignity as you hear their stories. You’ll bring joy into their day as you visit with them and maybe even play a little bingo. This is a great opportunity for your group to “ham it up” and sing a song or provide a skit. We’ll visit Park Manor, owned by the Dallas Housing Authority, which serves the elderly and disabled.
