Student Mission Trip
Who: Students who have completed 7th-12th grades by June 2019
What: We will be serving with the ministry City Service Mission
When: July 21-27, 2019
Where: Houston, TX
Why: Opportunity to reach out and serve hands on in the inner city, build Christ-centered relationships within our Student Ministries, and see the unity of the body of Christ in action as we partner with believers in Houston.
We learned about City Service Mission (CSM) through our partnership with another EFCA church in the San Antonio area, Wayside Chapel. CSM’s mission is “to provide an effective urban ministry experience that transforms lives, influences churches and communities, and honors Christ.” CSM provides urban ministry experiences in nine of the largest cities in the U.S. This year, based on our group’s size and availability, the city that best fits our youth group is Houston. We feel this is a tremendous opportunity providing all our students an invaluable opportunity to grow in community together while experiencing a diverse number of Christ-centered service opportunities in an inner city setting. We will also add a fun activity to make the most of our time in the Houston area.
