Senior High Mission Trip - Jackson Co., OH
July 15th - July 21st, 2017
Our Senior High youth are headed Ohio this upcoming summer! Get registered by November 1 to get in on this great opportunity!
Cost is $700.
Here's a little bit about Jackson Co.: Nestled in the rolling hills of Southeastern Ohio is Jackson County. Due to the economic shifting of the industrial infrastructure, a once thriving community now faces a 7.9% unemployment rate. Degrading public utilities have been a constant reminder of the difficult times. Through all of the difficulties Jackson County faces there is an exuberant sense of community pride, and despite the hardships, many parties are seeing the issues and are striving for a better future.
EM partners with the local church, World Outreach Ministries. The church affirms the local government’s initiative to transform the community – contributing to community improvement in any and every way it can. Through our partnership, Experience Mission also works alongside a drug recovery ministry, Warriors for Christ Recovery where our teams work with the youth of drug strained neighborhoods.
Southeastern Ohio Teams share in the forward motion of community improvement. There are ample opportunities to work with the local government and church to contribute to much-needed home repair and affirmation. Additionally, teams have the liberty to work in drug-impoverished neighborhoods—building relationships and investing in the youth of the area.
Here's a little more about Experience Mission: Experience Mission exists to spread Christ's love by connecting people together from diverse cultures and backgrounds, developing leaders, and assisting those that live in under-developed communities with resources and support to enable them to reach their own communities and actively participate in extending out to the world.
