SUMMER YOUTH MISSION TRIPS-

PROJECT TRANSFORMATION - Throughout the year, we will offer ways to serve together https://projecttransformation.org/
MISSION IS NOT A TRIP - While we value opportunities to get away on a mission, God grants us opportunities to live missional lives everyday. We want to encourage youth to continually grow in awareness of ways to serve among friends, families, schools, and other communities.
“It takes time to fall in love with God; it takes time to feel the beauty and suffering of each person and to meditate on the mystery of faith.”
- Mark Yaconelli, Growing Souls: Experiments in Contemplative Youth Ministry
