This summer, our High School Ministry (9-12 grade) will travel back to Philadelphia, PA reach out to others with the Life-Saving message of Jesus Christ! This will be our fifth trip to Philly at Christ Church, and Doug's twelfth trip leading students on mission there. This is truly a life-changing experience. Our hope is that you will prayerfully consider as a family sending your High Schooler on this trip with us.
There are Five Ministry Tracks to serve in on this trip:
- Social Ministry: Serving in Food Banks, Soup Kitchens, and working with the Mentally Challenged and Elderly
- Children's Ministry: Serving in Boys and Girls Clubs, Local church Kids’ Programs, and Vacation Bible Schools
- Games and Recreation: Using Games and Sports to build relationships and lead Bible Studies in City Parks or Local YMCA’s
- Painting, Construction and Yard-work: Serving the Community to complete projects for those who are not capable of doing so
- Homeless Ministries: Working with the Homeless through various Programs for Adults and Children and leading Bible Studies in local Homeless Shelters
Housing arrangements are quite accommodating and secure. We will be staying in the dorms of Eastern University, a Private Christian School, about a half hour north of the city in King of Prussia and eating breakfast and dinner in their dining hall. In the mornings, students are trained how to share their faith to the people they will encounter in Philly – they will also learn about the specific locations they will be visiting, the people there, and the needs they have. From 10am-5pm, students will serve in their ministry tracks throughout the city of Philadelphia. In the evening, back at Eastern University, students experience Large-Group Worship with challenging Guest Speakers, camp-wide Fellowship Activities and Small Group Time with our church group.
