Just beyond the glamour of the Magnificent Mile, hearts lie in ruin.
Millions of guests visit the Windy City each year to experience the shopping, restaurants, and world famous landmarks. The famous elevated trains rumble above bustling streets that still retain the welcoming feel of a Midwestern community. Chicago’s warm, friendly atmosphere makes it a popular destination for tourists and businesses alike.
The most diverse region in the Midwest, Chicago boasts over 200 ethnic and language groups. From the famous deep-dish pizza to Ukrainian borsch to dim sum in Chinatown, it’s all authentic.
However, Chicago also remains one of the most segregated cities in the US. Racial tensions run high, and the 165,000 homeless have overwhelmed the cities resources. AIDS, prostitution, gang violence, and drug abuse feed a perpetual cycle of decay that haunts the city.
Chicago needs your help to break the cycle.
Your team will invest in the children of Chicago as you partner with a host of dynamic inner-city organizations. Share the love of Jesus with children in Vacation Bible School, teaching stories God’s strength as they learn to make better choices than the people they see around them.
You may have the opportunity to connect with youth in the streets and bring hope for a brighter future through sports outreach programs, sharing worship and Bible lessons and providing new options for life.
Teach children and teens how to choose a different path than their parents, one that avoids drugs, crime, and violence.
In your free time, take in one of Chicago’s many museums, ride the giant Navy Pier Ferris Wheel, or grab a Chicago dog from one of the carts that dot downtown.
Will you come share the hope of Christ with the children of Chicago?
