Hello parents of and youth in high school!


I can't be more excited about the upcoming 2021 mission trip and year of 20-21! Julie and I have already met several times to plan for the year and the trip.

I know things are not normal right now with the pandemic and the chaotic atmosphere that it has created, but we are trusting God and moving ahead. Our hope and prayer is that you will consider joining us on this adventure. The trip is open to all incoming high school students. 


We will be having an informational/application opening meeting this Sunday night, July 12th at 6:30pm. Parents/guardians and students need to be in attendance (even if they are on different screens).


(If you have any inkling of interest in this trip, it is imperative that you attend this meeting, as it will be the beginning of a one year discipleship and team building journey. If along the course of the year you do not feel comfortable with the process or the trip, you will be able to drop out, but you will not be able to join later.)


At the meeting, we will be talking about the goals and objectives of the trip, fundraising, requirements, and the journey of growth to get there. 


We will work with families as a team, so don't even let the fear of the cost of the trip cause you to say no. 


I know there are tons of questions, so please make it a point in coming.  


We look forward to seeing you there!
