From June 21-27, a team of 8 students and 3 leaders will travel to Roger’s Park, Chicago. I’m most excited for is what our students will learn as they serve the community. As a Youth Ministry, one of our core values is onMission. Living out this idea means that we daily ask for God’s leading, and that wherever we go, and whatever we’re asked to do is done with relentless faith. Unifying the value of onMission is the Great Commission. Jesus’ final command before leaving this earth was that we would go into all places (locally, regionally, and globally) making disciples who make disciples. I’m excited to watch these high school students discover the way their unique gifts and talents fit into sharing Christ with others.
Every day, students will learn about sharing their faith and how to put that into practice. The staff at Family Empowerment Centers of Chicago will teach Biblical principles aimed training students to see every community they live in as an opportunity to impact for Jesus Christ.
You’re invited to join us as we’re in Chicago. You can read students’ and leaders’ comments during the trip below. Most importantly, we would ask for your prayers.
