What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

Byron Center2

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.

Byron Center SERVE – Middle School Site

You’ll get to experience the best of both the city and the country in Byron Center. We’re close to rolling farmlands and to the thriving metropolitan area of Grand Rapids. This gives us a unique perspective on the needs of people who come from various backgrounds. Our goal is to meet the needs of people in our community as we harness the energy and potential of middle school students willing to work hard during this summer mission trip, make an impact, and have a whole lot of fun. We can’t wait to meet you and look forward to the things we will all learn together during this exciting week of service. God will surely do great things among us. Please note: this site is for students who have completed Grades 6, 7, 8.

Worksites

We work with a couple of area ministries to help us find our job sites for the mission trips. We also work with a local food pantry and a few other organizations in Grand Rapids. Some examples of job site tasks are:

-Painting

-Landscaping

-Inside and outside cleanup around the Bryon Center area

ThereforeGo Ministries only works with local Host Churches who discern what type of work and community outreach will be advantageous to their ongoing work and community. So your group serves alongside the host congregation, experiencing their passion for Christ and compassion for their neighbors.

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.
