What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

32-570x427.jpeg

ThereforeGo Ministries provides week-long high school service trips and other faith-forming events for middle and high school age students. Each year we partner with churches to host SERVE events in their local communities, which are five to seven-day youth mission trips that send students out to care for and restore their world in an environment where they’ll encounter the concepts of justice and missional living. More than just a short service trip, SERVE is a faith-forming experience where the communities, congregations and students involved all experience lasting transformation.

Crown Point SERVE

Established in 1934, Crown Point is a city with a quaint hometown atmosphere and plenty of fascinating history.  Situated in the center of what locals call “the Square” you will find the original Lake County Courthouse and clock tower named “The Grand Old Lady”. Established in 1834 this historic town has inviting antique malls, restaurants, specialty stores, and coffee shops.  Crown Point citizens are friendly and love hearing about the work that SERVE participants do in the community through our church.

Although Crown Point is a growing and thriving community you don’t have to go far to see a very different story.  Many communities in Northwest Indiana and South Chicago struggle with unemployment, gangs, drugs, poor family structure and the financial, social, and emotional difficulties that come with it.  It’s here that we have made it a priority to nurture each other in the faith with the help of the Holy Spirit and demonstrate God’s love using words and acts of kindness as we attempt to be sensitive to the spiritual, physical, and emotional needs around us.

Pre-trip: ThereforeGo Ministries supplies sending church youth leaders with a Digital Resource Box full of helps for adult leaders, vision casting materials (such as parent letter, pastor letter, bulletin insert, etc.) and pre-trip lessons for the youth group. Each adult leader receives the Leaders Guide one month before the trip so they can review the theme material and small group discussion outlines. During the trip: the Speaker, Worship Leader and the Spiritual Life Coordinator from the host church work with youth leaders to weave together the entire experience in light of the Gospel. Personal devotions, small group discussion material and debriefing questions for the work day are all included in the Leaders Guide and discussed in daily Leader Meetings. Post Trip: ThereforeGo Ministries has worked hard with church leaders to develop a post trip plan that helps students think through the spiritual impact of the week and integrate what they've learned in to every day life. The post trip plan is in the Leaders Guide as well as the Digital Resource Box.
