Mission trips give youth the opportunity to follow God's call by serving needy communities out in the world. In June, the youth will partner with YouthWorks and travel to the Blue Ridge Mountains, NC. The high school youth will partner with Thirst Missions in Alaska. The youth have answered the call to take the gospel into the world and be the hands and feet of Jesus Christ. Are you a 7-12th grade student who is interested in serving?

About Blue Ridge Mountains
Our group will experience the great beauty of both people and nature in the scenic small towns that surround the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. By participating in children’s ministry, completing work projects and supporting local ministries, we’ll make connections with the people of the area while addressing some significant needs. In the evenings, our group will explore the great outdoors, engage with community members and end the week with a community cookout.
