Summer Mission Trip

Each summer a mission trip is planned for 7th and 8th graders.

Here’s the deal: We think that every teenager should experience a mission trip that values relationships, respects communities and connects the hands of service with the heart of Jesus. Again and again we see quality mission trip experiences show students how to use their lives to love and value others better.

Generally speaking, this trip is within the Midwest region (ie, Minnesota, South Dakota and Wisconsin) and is roughly a week in length.
