What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

IMG_9232.JPG

World Servants partners with local churches and leaders in Jellico, Tennessee and has been invited to assist with a variety of projects. community leaders determine which families are most in need and will best benefit from a World Servants team coming to work with them on their home.

Many of the community members live in mobile home trailers in need of significant upkeep. Through serving a local family you will have the opportunity to build a relationship with family members and learn about their life stories.

Many people in the Appalachia mountains live fairly secluded, lonely lives and are quite shy. By developing relationships you will earn the privilege to share your own story and the significance of faith in Christ in your life.

In addition, to construction projects you will help with Kids' Club or a similar type of ministry program that reaches out to the children and youth of the community. With your help and that of Good Soil, World Servants also hosts Life Skill seminars for people of all ages. Different topics include finance management, reading, bike repair and even guitar lessons.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Flexibility is the key! All participants are asked to remain flexible and open to the opportunities for “being” and “doing” what the Spirit provides. Ministry and outreach activities are customized to the community's specific needs and are specifically determined closer to the time of the trip. Our goal is to best partner with the community we are going to serve. Please keep this in mind when discussing trip details with potential participants!

**Customized trips are available.

Relation of Opportunity to National Church and/or Long-term Goals

For sustainable, long-term impact, World Servants staff work closely with community partners who live and work in project communities long before you arrive. A team of in-field community leaders are identified to build a vision for their community. We train and equip these leaders to successfully partner with our short-term teams in an effort to build long-term relationships.

Once the short-term mission teams leave, we continue to strengthen relationships with community leaders and identify extended opportunities for you to come alongside them as well.
