What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

Houston

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.

Cadillac, MI SERVE

Cadillac is a “Northern Michigan” city with a population of 10,000 with another 10,000 in the greater community. Within the city is an entire lake that is over 2.5 miles long, along with several parks and beaches. While there are many healthy elements in our community, 44% of children under the age of 5 live below the poverty line and 64% of people in our county do not identify as Christian. Our church congregation, about 250 people, has a long history of connections with services such as homeless shelters, food pantries, home improvement and creation care efforts.

Worksites

During the day worksites will be located at owner occupied homes, a family resource center, elder care facilities, a title-one elementary school, and homeless shelters. There will also be a few intentional “creation care” projects. Some examples of work site projects are:

-Painting homes

-Yard Work

-Thrift store sorting

-Highway and river cleanup

-Playing games and hymn sing-alongs with seniors

-Elementary school reading support activities

-Street evangelism

Training debriefing
Pre-trip: Youth Unlimited 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: Youth Unlimited 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.
