What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

Work site at Whitinsville SERVE

ThereforeGo Ministries provides week-long high school service trips and other faith-forming events for middle and high school age students. Each year we partner with churches to host SERVE events in their local communities, which are five to seven-day youth mission trips that send students out to care for and restore their world in an environment where they’ll encounter the concepts of justice and missional living. More than just a short service trip, SERVE is a faith-forming experience where the communities, congregations and students involved all experience lasting transformation.

Whitinsville SERVE

Part of the larger Blackstone River Valley, which is known as the “Birthplace of the American Industrial Revolution,” Whitinsville, Massachusetts, the town (along with the rest of the Blackstone River Valley) was recently designated part of a National Historic Park! However, you would not know this by walking along the rivers, mills, and housing that characterize this historic diamond in the rough. Neglected due to economic decline, parts of town including key waterways, potential parks, and historic buildings are greatly in need of some TLC. Students will break out the work gloves and be asked to lend some sweat equity to help restore hope, pride, and beauty to one of our country’s newest National Parks, while also growing closer to the One who restores our lives.

Worksites will be primarily physical in nature, however, each small group will also be asked to lay down the work gloves for a morning or afternoon and participate at a relational site as well. Some examples of worksites are:

-Community restoration

-Painting

-Gardening

-Building fences

Pre-trip: ThereforeGo Ministries supplies sending church youth leaders with a Digital Resource Box full of helps for adult leaders, vision casting materials (such as parent letter, pastor letter, bulletin insert, etc.) and pre-trip lessons for the youth group. Each adult leader receives the Leaders Guide one month before the trip so they can review the theme material and small group discussion outlines. During the trip: the Speaker, Worship Leader and the Spiritual Life Coordinator from the host church work with youth leaders to weave together the entire experience in light of the Gospel. Personal devotions, small group discussion material and debriefing questions for the work day are all included in the Leaders Guide and discussed in daily Leader Meetings. Post Trip: ThereforeGo Ministries has worked hard with church leaders to develop a post trip plan that helps students think through the spiritual impact of the week and integrate what they've learned in to every day life. The post trip plan is in the Leaders Guide as well as the Digital Resource Box.
