This summer youth (6-12 grade students) will have an amazing chance to put their faith into action by serving people in need while having a blast in Music City USA (otherwise known as Nashville, TN). We will worship, play, work, laugh and build friendships as a way to grow our faith and show the love of Jesus to those we serve.
Opportunities will be given for ministry with children in low income apartments as well as work projects.
Lodging is provided at a local church only minutes away from where we will worship and hang out.
This is our 6th straight year in Nashville working along side Students Living a Mission (aka SLAM), and you can learn more by checking outwww.slamweb.org
Scholarships are available, so don't hesitate to ask as we never want cost to keep a student from going on a mission trip.
