Youth Mission Trip July 16-21

Youth Group is booked for July 16-21 in Nashville, TN! Please pray for this upcoming trip, and each member. May God prepare their hearts & minds to serve those in need, and to give those going the time and energy to work in order to raise the money needed to go.  Bino reports about half the funds raised!

Donations may be sent to ‘Church of the Word’ and designated ‘Youth Mission trip’.

How they will Serve

As your team members enter into the lives of others and build relationships with the people of Nashville, they’ll experience God working through them at projects such as these:

  • Work with lower-income children through an organization that offers tutoring, summer camp, a basketball league, job skills training, and other recreational and cultural activities as a positive alternative to the streets.
  • Assist refugees through a ministry that engages churches, other organizations, and individuals to assist immigrants and refugees in the region.
  • Serve with a local summer school that works to increase literacy to keep kids off the streets and out of the prisons.
  • Help teach rising Kindergartners their basics like ABCs, colors, shapes and work with them on reading in a safe summer environment.
  • Spend time with individuals involved in a program that offers structured activities to older adults with cognitive or physical limitations.
  • Provide help to seniors that are unable to work on the inside and outside of their homes.
  • Package and deliver diapers to families through the Diaper Connection.

Our Partners

We have a Local Coordinator there who maintains connections with the organizations that we serve throughout the year so that our service and relationships are sustainable. She is a local resident and works in the community. She is a wonderful resource and you will see her pop in and out of your camp.

We also have another local partner who serves the community where our participants are staying. He is also a wonderful resource and will be around during your stay.

We will be volunteering with a number of agencies in the East Nashville area, including a local elementary school, a summer camp hosted at a local church, a couple of VBS programs, a big local food project, and many others!
