Youth Mission Trips
“What you’ll get is the Holy Spirit. And when the Holy Spirit comes on you, you will be able to be my witnesses in Jerusalem, all over Judea and Samaria, even to the ends of the world”.
— Acts 1:8
West Side Youth Ministry believes mission experiences are an important part of faith development, and we strive to give students a variety of opportunities to serve during their years in the youth program. We rotate our mission experiences every three years: an evangelism training conference (Momentum 2012, 2015, MOVE 2018), a regional trip (MissionSeattle 2013, Week of Hope 2016) and a cross-cultural experience (Dominican Republic 2011, 2014, 2017).
This summer (July 7-14, 2019), we will be going to the rural area of Pine Ridge, South Dakota to partner with the Crazy Horse School in providing a safe place for kids. Our team will engage with YouthWorks’ Kids Club ministry and serve through painting and simple work projects. In addition to serving we will see the rugged beauty of the Badlands, experience The Gathering beneath a 40-foot cross in South Dakota’s rolling prairie-lands, grapple with issues of poverty, take part in a community cookout and hear the history of the area.
