Spring Weekend Trips
January 24-25, 2014
The OKC Evangelism Trip is designed to help students learn about church planting and evangelism in an urban setting. As we work with and learn from the people of Joe's Addiction, a coffeeshop, community assistance ministry, and church in a neighborhood scarred from addictions, crime, corruption, and poverty, students will explore the role of community development in evangelism--the meeting of felt needs as an avenue to not just speak the gospel message but to show it as well.
New Orleans, LA
March 15-22, 2014
The New Orleans Service Trip is for the purpose of helping the New Orleans community in their continued efforts to rebuild their homes and their lives. We will partner with Touch Global, a relief ministry of the Evangelical Free Church of America. We will be available to help in any way possible, from home repair/construction to prayer walks and outreach ministries to meal preparation.
March 15-22, 2014
We will be partnering, as community builders, with the Spencer Perkins Center. SPC focuses on Christian community development through reconciliation, redistribution, and relocation . We will be given a work project for the week which will consist of anything from refurbishing houses to landscaping to painting. Through educational opportunities, teaching from John Perkins, outreach ministries, and visits to historically significant civil rights locations, the goal is for a spiritually enriching experience that helps students understand how to engage in Christian community development.
October 17-21, 2014
The Chicago Inner City Vision Trip is designed to help students learn about and from inner city cultures and about ministry in these cultures. The trip will include exposure to both Hispanic and African American churches and neighborhoods, homeless shelters, work projects and more. This is not primarily an evangelistic mission, but rather a learning mission-although we certainly hope that opportunities for spoken and lived evangelism will occur.
