Mission Trip

2013 marked our 13th Mission Trip through Group Workcamp , based in Loveland, CO. Group Workcamps® are high-energy and action-packed, yet powerful and life-changing! For the past 3 years, we’ve dedicate the last week of June to being the hands and feet of Jesus by serving others in His name.

At Workcamps, youth groups come together to serve individuals and communities, while building strong, long-lasting relationships with their friends and youth leaders.

In six short days, hundreds of kids from youth groups across the country will repair and transform homes while strengthening and transforming their own faith. Part of the faith building comes in the form of the daily challenges. Now we don’t mean we’re going to ask kids to scale a tree with a chainsaw but we do want to challenge them to do something they may not have done before. For some, that might be painting a house for the first time; for others, they may learn how to use a chop saw or drill. Whatever the case, sometimes getting a little uncomfortable and vulnerable is exactly where God wants us.
