What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

Serving the homeless in Jesus Stop watching reality TV, live it instead! Let your "vacation" be life-changing for others but also for YOU! Groups (5 or more, including families) apply for Urban Outreach (1 week in summer) or Urban Encounters (weekends/school breaks): your group will be stretched and challenged as you serve with established inner-city churches/ministries like a "love" kitchen or food bank; build relationships working with children in parks or playgrounds (summer), or in an after-school program (school year); provide meals for the homeless and disadvantaged; do outreach with a book table; participate in a prayer walk; worship in an inner-city church; and, hear from people involved in inner-city ministry.

Summer internships (late June - early August); includes working with youth groups & their leaders, serving with different inner-city ministries; and leading children's Bible clubs in parks and playgrounds. This is a great opportunity to develop your leadership skills.

The hearts of interns and group participants will be touched as you touch lives in New York City!! You won't be a tourist, although you will be able to enjoy the sights, instead you will experience New York City in a very real way!

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

Groups serve for a week, an extended weekend or during school breaks; groups will serve with established churches and/or inner-city ministries who provide follow-up for those whose lives have been touched by your ministry.
