Geist Christian Church
High School Youth Mission Trip
For our Senior High Youth, will be traveling to Hazard, KY to participate in the Housing Development Alliance. The HDA is an organization that believes that safe, decent, and affordable housing is a fundamental human right. The HDA is an equal opportunity housing provider, which works with a variety of homeowners, including, but not limited to, young working couples with children, single parents, persons with disabilities, and elderly persons. During our week, we will volunteer on various phases of construction, from shingling to digging footer drains, framing floors and walls to painting or landscaping. We hope that this week-long program will create an environment that will encourage youth to probe deeper into their faith and how they can help in a community that is so close to home.
While in Hazard, KY we will be staying at First Presbyterian Church of Hazard in various Sunday school and fellowship rooms. Youth will need to bring their own sleeping bags/air mattresses. The church offers plenty of space with a good-sized kitchen for us to cook our meals. I also encourage our youth to bring the bare essentials. We are limited to two pieces of luggage with the bus.
