VISION

“And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere-in Jerusalem,
throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
– Acts 1:8

 

The massive flooding in central West Virginia in June 2016 deeply affected 12 counties, killed 23 people, and devastated over 1,200 homes and families. The city of Clendenin was at the center of that disaster. Flood recovery continues, and will continue for years to come. We have an opportunity to be the hands of feet of Jesus in a community that is still recovering. This week of service, partnering with Next Step Ministries, is a short-term mission trip that has a focus of long-term community development. What we do will help the community for years to come and will change the lives of the students that attend forever.

Not only will we serve the community of Clendenin, WV and share the love and message of Jesus with others through service projects, but our students will be ministered to as well. Daily devotions and a worship service every evening will bring our team closer to the Lord and closer to each other.
