Spiritual Growth – There is nothing more important than an individuals personal relationship with God. We are all designed to grow in our faith and understanding of who God is and who were created to be. We are passionate about creating an environment for youth to connect their faith with service. We want teenagers to return home with a profound love for Jesus and new eyes to see how God is at work in their every day. We provide intentional times to connect through scripture, worship, and devotions to promote spiritual growth. Our mission trip experiences are also designed to encourage the organic moments that happen outside of programmed times: the conversations that happen around the dinner table, the relationships formed at projects sites, the stories that connect participants and encourage them in their faith. There are endless opportunities for spiritual growth.
Sustainability and Long-term Partnerships – We partner with local organizations and ministries to provide meaningful support for their year-round sustainable programs, ensuring our efforts have lasting impact in the communities we serve. We believe the best way to serve is through the partnerships we establish in each community. We have a local mission to address the specific needs in each community with a global vision to advance the kingdom of God through service. We believe sustainable change is possible when we come alongside the good work of those already embedded in each community and offer resources, help, and teams where theyre needed most.
Investing in the Next Generation – We believe the next generation is made up of influencers, difference-makers, and powerful leaders, and theres no better time than NOW to invest in our youth. Our mission trip experiences are intentionally designed to develop teenagers into young leaders by teaching leadership skills, positive character traits, compassion for others, and practical life skills that will help our participants grow into the leaders of tomorrow. Through scripture, service projects, and an opportunity to step outside their own worlds we believe youth will be inspired and encouraged to follow Jesus in their school, community, church, and world.
Authentic Relationships – As Christians, we are strengthened through unified relationships. One of the greatest opportunities of a mission trip is the chance to meet new people while serving together. Participants build authentic relationships with the people they serve and those they serve with. Strangers become family. Crew members become best friends. Differences begin to disappear as individuals come together to serve with a shared purpose. Its amazing to see the depth of relationships that form when participants are united in a common mission and share in the celebration of transformed lives and communities.
