Mission trips by their very nature are cross-cultural experiences. Whether traveling to the inner city or to someplace more rural, the students are leaving the comforts of Northern Virginia to experience another culture. Mission trips are also an opportunity to serve God. Depending on the service opportunity students might serve food to the homeless, construct a wheelchair ramp for the disabled, repair a roof, or teach Bible School. Mission trips intentionally develop and deepen relationships between students, between students and leaders, and most importantly between students and God. Time for worship and devotions is a key component of the trip allowing students the space to experience God.
CROSSROADS 2019 SUMMER MISSION TRIP
JEREMIAH PROJECT–ROMNEY, WV
Sunday, July 14 – Saturday, July 20
Students will not want to miss this opportunity to learn basic construction projects such as building wheelchair ramps and stairs, painting, yard work and general maintenance. The fruit of students’ work directly impacts others–keeping them warmer, safer, and drier. At the beginning of each day students enjoy morning devotional; each day ends with worship, games and small groups.
