What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

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.

Barrie SERVE

The city of Barrie has been around since the War of 1812, creating historical links to the Nine Mile Portage and the Underground Railway.  Located on the beautiful Kempenfelt Bay about an hour north of Toronto, Barrie continues to be one of the fastest growing cities in Canada.  This growth brings challenges.  On this trip you will be working in homeless shelters, retirement homes, and participating in environmental clean-ups.  Our goal is to help you further your relationship with God by creating bonds with your small groups as well as serving the growing city of Barrie.  From the infamous Spirit Catcher to the beautiful hiking trails, participating in the Barrie SERVE will help you live out our church's motto of "Growing in love for God and neighbour".

We are hoping to partner with retirement homes, homeless shelters, food banks, pregnancy centers, and organizations like Christian Horizons.

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.
