Our trip will take us to metropolitan Chicago, where we will partner with existing local ministries that serve a variety of needs such as, working with special needs kids, running a sports camp for refugee kids, cleaning and repairing home projects, working on a horse farm that ministers to children with special needs, FCA sports camp, working in a food pantry, helping serve the homeless, packing emergency meals for refugees around the world and many more.
LEAD222'S SERVANT LEADERSHIP EXPERIENCE
For this trip, we will be using an organization called Lead222. Their "Servant Leadership Experience" uniquely combines a mission trip and a leadership conference into one week-long, high impact trip!
Students will get their hands dirty and their hearts moved as they serve together. Missions projects are all designed to help students serve practical needs and that can range from being very relational to very project oriented.
Students will be given training during the week, where they will be challenged to put their leadership abilities to the test in a fun and interactive way.
During the week, students will engage in experiential opportunities that are designed to help them connect with and worship God.
