Twin Cities: July 19-25th
Following Jesus will be a life that calls us to all sorts of different things and we will be required to break free of the sea of sameness that surrounds us in this world. This year at our LEAD222 events we want to pour into young leaders and encourage them to live differently for the purposes of God’s Kingdom!
Why should I go to St. Paul?
LEADMISSIONS Twin Cities, is being hosted by LEAD222 Youth Pastors from the Minnesota Region. We will be partnering with different ministries all over the cities who are reaching the poor, hurting, lonely and spiritually lost. Your students will be confronted with the reality of poverty in the US, cross-cultural tensions and opportunities to present the Gospel to those who are far from Jesus. Add to these experiences the training, leadership development and mentoring elements woven into each day this trip is sure to bear fruit for God’s Kingdom both here in the Twin Cities as well as back home as youth pastors and students alike return to their churches with the same heart of living a life of mission and mentorship. Our plan for the ministry this trip also includes continuing to serve into the evening with some of our partners. After the work is done for the trip teams can enjoy some of the many entertaining spots around the area like the Mall of America, Valley Fair, the Minnesota Twins and/or any of our beautiful lakes and beaches. We hope you’ll join us as we see God’s Kingdom advance through us in the Twin Cities and in our hearts as we grow as men, women, leaders and followers of Jesus.
The Middle School mission trip to the St. Paul will provide you an opportunity to exercise your faith in a context that will encourage growth by “living out” scripture as you partner with God by working in neighborhoods that are seeking to live missionally by serving the needs of their communities. We understand more clearly the love of Christ when we proclaim the gospel in both word and deed. Mission trips can become the launch pad… a drawing back of the bow… a wind-up for the pitch, as they equip and encourage students to go home and love the communities they travel into every day when they roll out of bed. So let’s go Middle schoolers, let’s love and serve like Christ!
Another plus for going on this trip is the cost of this trip, which is half the normal price. The reasons being 1) Serving grows our faith so I don’t want cost to be a hinderance. 2) I’m getting the word out later than normal so smaller time frame to sign up. Lower the price to offset the time crunch but I do have limited spots.
