What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

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.

Redlands SERVE

The city of Redlands is located in beautiful sunny Southern California, about an hour and fifteen-minute drive east of Los Angeles. Redlands is also an hour drive from the beach, mountains and desert, making its location prime! The River CRC is located on the south side of Redlands where the citrus in the air is thick twice a year from the citrus blossoms. Due to its location, participants should be prepared for very warm weather! Though Redlands has much to offer, there is much need in the city. Redlands SERVE is an opportunity to help meet the needs of our city. Participants will be serving in many capacities that offer them opportunities for a change of perspective and will also have opportunities to grow in their faith as they worship in various locations throughout beautiful Southern California.

Worksites:

Redlands has a wide range of service projects and outreach opportunities for local and global organizations. Most if not all worksites will be in the city of Redlands, Yucaipa, or San Bernardino. These locations will offer various worksites such as

  • Local food banks
  • Serving local families
  • Assisting at area retirement homes and senior centers
  • Work at local community gardens

Relation of Opportunity to National Church and/or Long-term Goals

ThereforeGo Ministries only works with local Host Churches who discern what type of work and community outreach will be advantageous to their ongoing work and community. So your group serves alongside the host congregation, experiencing their passion for Christ and compassion for their neighbors.

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.
