What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

Students at a Work Site at Douglas 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 high school service trip, SERVE is a faith-forming experience where the communities, congregations and students involved all experience lasting transformation.

Douglas SERVE

Children’s Haven is a unique ministry nestled in the Blackstone Valley area of Massachusetts. “The Haven” works with children and teens from Worcester, MA, the second largest city in New England. The majority of our city families are unchurched, low-income, and broken. The parents desire their children to have a better life and see The Haven as an extension of their family. The Haven also works with children and teens from smaller towns in southern MA. These children, while not from the city, also come laden with burdens and baggage.  These families also face the daily struggles of unemployment, relationship struggles, and drugs that we see in our city families. Camp weaves these lives of difficult cultures and environments together into a tapestry of variety and beauty. Teens from our program will be working with you and serving you, as well. The majority of these high school students are unchurched.

Our worksites will be a blend of city worksites, local town projects, and Camp Chilaven projects.  We partner with Elm Park Community School and the Douglas Public Schools during the school year.  We will be assisting them with projects that help them get ready for the new school year.  At camp, there will be maintenance and property improvement opportunities.  We also are hoping to offer a family "carnival" where the SERVE team partners with The Haven to host The Haven families and possibly some refugee families affiliated with a partner organization.

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.
