Geist Christian Church
Jr. High Youth Mission Trip
Our Jr. High mission trip will join forces to participate in a Presbyterian-affiliated mission experience called Mission Immersion, an urban ministry designed to educate and challenge participants to reach out to the “least of these” by exposing them to the plight of lower-income and individuals experiencing homelessness in Lexington, KY. Through a variety of social ministries, youth will use their gifts and strengths as they engage and bring about change to those in the city. This urban mission experience will motivate people to act in constructive, appropriate, and loving ways, both now and in the future, challenging individuals to consider ministry and service an essential daily part of living out their faith.
While in Lexington, we will be staying at Maxwell Street Presbyterian Church. The Church DOES have air conditioning AND 6 showers. We will, however, need to bring a fitted sheet, sleeping bag, and pillow. I also encourage our youth to bring the bare essentials. We are limited to two pieces of luggage with the bus.
