Youth Missions

Summer 2018

 

We are excited to be heading out on youth mission projects for the 18th consecutive summer in 2018! We have participated in several different trips through those years, and our 2018 offerings are below. We hope you will be in service with us this summer - If you're interested in joining us or should you have any questions, please email or call our Youth Director, Bert Miller at youth@gumchurch.com

We are in need of parents to help drive & supervise the trips - if you would like to attend, please let Bert know by email. Thanks!

High School Mission Trip with Reach

June 17-23, 2018 - Greenville, SC

This summer, the high school youth will be returning to work with Reach missions for the first time in two years. Reach is a nationwide organization that works with teenagers to do mission work in all sorts of locations. This year, we'll be in Greenville, South Carolina working with low income and elderly residents there. We'll be working on physical mission projects like building repair and yard maintenance as well as doing social work with many of the locals there. With Reach, we'll be in attendance that week alongside many other churches so this is a great opportunity to meet other Christians from all over the East coast.

 

Middle School Mission Trip

Jeremiah Project - July 1-7, 2017 - Romney, WV

This will be the 17th summer we have participated in The Jeremiah Project (JP) - a middle school specific mission trip. The youth and adults who participate in JP spend the week performing home repair tasks such as porch construction, house painting, wheelchair ramp construction, yard work, and other jobs. A strong emphasis is also placed on interacting with the persons for whom we work. This is designed to help us see that all people have many types of needs, including the visible, physical needs. Families are referred to us by agencies or individuals, and the family requests the type of work needed - this way we meet their needs as they see them.
