Inquire about the trip

Originally named by Native American tribes estovomaoet vehpototse, or Valley of Flowers, the Gallatin Valley was designated as an area for intertribal peace and serenity whose beauty speaks for itself. But between soaring mountains and sprawling prairies, the people of Yellowstones gateway often get overlooked. With the help of high school youth, our churches hope to reach out to those people who are in need in this valley.

What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

GV3.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.

Gallatin Valley SERVE

Originally named by Native American tribes “estovomao’et vehpototse”, or “Valley of Flowers”, the Gallatin Valley was designated as an area for intertribal peace and serenity whose beauty speaks for itself. But between soaring mountains and sprawling prairies, the people of Yellowstone’s gateway often get overlooked. With the help of high school youth, our churches hope to reach out to those people who are in need in this valley. Worship takes place in a variety of environments, which is why Gallatin Valley SERVE offers a few different locations and settings for evening worship throughout the week. Most unique to Gallatin Valley SERVE is the varied summer temperatures. During SERVE, participants have encountered snow! Be prepared for hot and dry days that are accompanied by cool nights.

Worksites:

The Gallatin Valley has a wide range of service and outreach opportunities for local and global organizations.

Planned worksites are located in the urban center of Bozeman along with the smaller towns of Manhattan, Churchill, Belgrade and Gallatin Gateway. This will ensure that we make a broad impact amongst a diverse group of Montanans. Some worksites are more relational, while others enable youth to get their hands dirty! The list of work sites include:

  • Love INC
  • ROC Wheels
  • Headwaters Food Bank
  • Serving local families
  • Assisting at area retirement homes and senior centers
  • Twice Treasured Thrift Store
  • And more!

*Don’t forget your work gloves and long sleeves as a battle against juniper bushes continue!

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.
