What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

Work Site at Grand Rapids Brookside

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.

Grand Rapids (Brookside) SERVE

Welcome to Grand Rapids! The Brookside SERVE Site has been a site for over a decade and will provide students and leaders with the opportunity to grow their faith while they serve the community and hang out with friends, both new and old. Our Host Team is made up of SERVE veterans and we love SERVE! We’ve coordinated meaningful work with a number of organizations in town and will provide care directly to under-resourced families and individuals in our own neighborhood. You’ll also have tons of fun with games, activities and a few surprises throughout the week. Oh yeah, the food is great too.

Some examples of work sites are:

-Prepping meals at a downtown mission

-Landscaping & painting

-Assisting clients as they shop at a clothing thrift store

-Working with students at a youth home

-Leading games and party set-up at a home for seniors

-Cleanup, light construction, and repair

-Handing out lemonade to the homeless

-…and more!

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.
