What do Coca-Cola, Six Flags, and heartbreak all have in common? Atlanta.
Atlanta’s explosive growth has brought a tourist economy and exciting attractions to northern Georgia, including the world's biggest aquarium. But that same growth also presents challenges for this city.
Homelessness, drug use, and crime take young people away from the futures they could have. Large refugee populations struggle to fit in in a city known for its Southern hospitality. Those who feel forgotten desperately need the hope of Jesus and a second chance.
All you need is a heart of compassion and a willingness to start a conversation with someone you've just met. By coming alongside established ministries, you can help deepen the work they're doing in Atlanta.
While in Atlanta, your ministry opportunities could look like:
For youth and adults, we work with a women's transition facility focused on stability and childcare. Work alongside clients in the afternoon, after leading their kids in VBS in the morning.
Women's Ministry: Your host is a women's program focused on the stability and childcare for women seeking a fresh start. You will work alongside clients in the afternoon.
Kids Ministry: You'll spend mornings with the kids at this ministry, playing with them and doing VBS, sharing the love of Christ through a child's favorite language: fun.
No matter what your ministry looks like in Atlanta, you will water seeds of service already planted in this diverse yet broken city. And your own heart will break and grow strong as you join the work God is doing here.
Atlanta needs help remembering how to love. Will you come and share Jesus with those searching for Him?
