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 a weekend or a week-long 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 each group with 6-10 different ministries, allowing students 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. Each Urban Plunge team is accompanied by a trained facilitator, encouraging and debriefing your youth in how to live lives of purpose, challenge and incredible fulfillment for the Lord.

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

Our Calling

Our calling is to be an advocate for the poor. Our Calling is to understand that poverty is a tough problem and we have a great God that can empower anyone to overcome any obstacle. Our Calling is to focus on the Spiritual components that are often overlooked. Our Calling is to love people and work hard every day so that they can live a better and more meaningful life.

Our Calling is more than a homeless ministry in Dallas. Our Calling is a movement of people reaching out to the poor and the homeless. We aren’t trying to band-aid or enable a destructive lifestyle. We don’t judge, condemn, or require anyone to listen to our message in order to receive help. We are trying to meet people’s needs while introducing them to a more productive and sustainable life through a relationship with their maker, Jesus Christ.

At Our Calling we might help in the warehouse or serve meals. You might join a “search and rescue” team that meets the homeless where they live; under a bridge, on the street, or in a field.

The Kitchen at Cornerstone Baptist Church

Providing meals to the homeless allows relationships to be built. This is usually the first contact that Cornerstone Church has with many of Fair Park’s homeless population. These new relationships open the door to many other opportunities to serve this population. At the kitchen we are going to practice “relationship” building. You won’t be serving the homeless, you’ll be eating alongside them. You’ll practice building relationships and maybe even friendships with a population that you usually don’t hang around with.

The Urban Plunge brings teams to work with various well-established local ministries whose vision is to serve the inner-city. Teams get to partner with these ministries during the weekend, and have the opportunity to continue their involvement on a long-term basis through prayer or volunteering.
