Costa Rica Mission Trip
The purpose of our annual Costa Rica Mission Trip is to partner with Wil Bailey through Costa Rica Mission Project and a local church to help God’s call on our lives to build the Kingdom of God here on earth. This partnership will include relationships, community worship, and a building project. In the process of sharing our faith and our love, we hope to grow in our faith. We intend to commit to a long-term, International, reciprocal relationship.
Middle School Mission Trip
Our annual Middle School Mission Trip has worked in partnership with The Pittsburgh Project since 2008 (typically takes place the second week of July).
*This year's trip will take place July 11-15, 2016.*
The Pittsburgh Project is a nonprofit community development organization with a 30-year track record of developing leaders and serving the city’s most vulnerable residents. Their year-round staff of 51 operates a progressive series of after-school and summer programs for 450 urban young people, deploys over 2800 people annually to perform free home repairs for Pittsburgh’s elderly homeowners, and spearheads economic development and job training efforts in our Pittsburgh neighborhood.
Their Vision: That Pittsburgh will be called a City of Truth, where once again men and women of ripe old age will sit in the streets each with cane in hand because of age, and where the city streets will be filled with boys and girls playing there (adapted from Zechariah 8:4-5).
