What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

Reaching hearts with the love of Jesus by sharing food with homeless & day workers! Your team/families will have a time of orientation upon arrival at the housing facilities located in the Bronx, NY. You will serve with established churches/ministries throughout New York City serving in a soup kitchen or food pantry; assist with an after-school program; volunteer at a World Vision Storehouse; help feed and clothe homeless; and participate in a prayer walk (as you do a little sight-seeing). The hearts of your group will be touched as they impact lives in the inner-city.

Relation of Opportunity to National Church and/or Long-term Goals

Urban Encounter teams serve with established churches and/or inner-city ministries who will provide follow-up for those whose lives have been touched by your ministry.
