What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

It is no secret that Nashville is an ever growing city. Between new apartments and businesses popping up over night, and a well known music scene, it seems like Nashville is the place to be! So when serving in Nashville you will see the new development as we talk about and see first hand the issues that a growing city faces.

We work alongside over 30 different organizations in the city and our desire is for each group to be challenged in their thought of what service and ministry looks like. There will be opportunities for your students to have a conversation with someone experiencing homelessness, throughout the school year we work with an after school program and during the summer we partner with summer camp programs; both of these service opportunities provide a way for students to spend time with children who call Nashville home. We also partner with several urban gardens in the Nashville area. These allow for conversations around food deserts and food insecurity. There will also be a chance to work in food distribution centers either by serving hot meals, or serving at a food bank.

Outside of serving with our partners your group will have the chance to experience our Prayer Tour, Urban Exposure, and (in the summer) Neighborhood Activity/Poverty Training. Each of these activities is designed to give your group the opportunity to see Nashville with the Lord's heart and eyes, to learn more about the history of our city, and to learn about current issues that people of Nashville are facing. We desire for students and leaders to be pushed out of their comfort zone in order to learn more about social justice issues, meet the people of Nashville where they are at, and experience the Lord's heart for all people.

Our heart is for each student and leader to see how the Lord is working in Nashville, while also challenging them to look back and think about how God is calling them to serve back home.
