Adventures in Missions has taken more than 115,000 people on mission trips around the world. Through various short and long-term programs, Adventures helps people from all walks of life discover the world, who Jesus is, and what He has called them to: making disciples of all nations (Matthew 28) and being His witnesses to the ends of the earth (Acts 1).
You want to do something that matters. You want to feel empowered and to make an impact on the world around you. You read about the way the followers of Jesus lived in the first century, and something in you is longing to do more – to live out your faith, hear the voice of God, and display His love to those who need it.
You want to go deeper in your relationship with God. You want to see lives changed.
Imagine experiencing firsthand how to listen to the voice of God, serve others in high-need ministry contexts, and make a real difference in the lives of others.
If you want to join a Christ-centered community committed to doing what the first generation of disciples did, then it’s time for you to join us in…
New Orleans is a hopping city full of good food, music, and rich culture.
Located on the Mississippi River, this city is the birthplace of jazz and a melting pot of French, African, and American cultures. In 2005, Hurricane Katrina swept through New Orleans, striking a devastating blow to the livelihood of every resident. Nearly 80% of the city flooded, leaving a trail of destruction. Overnight, thousands of people became homeless and unemployed. The nation rallied around relief efforts in the early days following the hurricane, but slowly national attention shifted further away from those whose lives were destroyed.
It takes far more than bricks and lumber to rebuild a devastated city. Your youth group can partner with those who are helping rebuild lives and restoring hope in New Orleans.
While in New Orleans, you will join the missions of Trumpet of Truth or First Baptist Avondale (your ministry partner will depend on the window of time you are in New Orleans).
Community Outreach: Your team will be involved with inner-city ministry, building relationships, and feeding a community in poverty. Your team will join Pastor Collins of Trumpet of Truth and his team at an apartment complex where they hand out groceries and pray for people. They take one day to put on a VBS for the kids in that apartment complex, providing hot meals when they can. A couple times a year they put on a big cook out for the police department just to say thank you for their services, so you might get the chance to participate in that as well!
Sports Camp: The team will run a sports camp. Part of the team will go to the park/fields and start playing with kids, while the rest of the team goes out to invite other kids to join. The team will make a detailed schedule of what they want the day to look like in order to keep the kids engaged. Before the team leaves for lunch they will have time to sing a few songs with the kids and teach a short bible lesson.
The team will be housed in a local church with bunk beds or mattresses on the floor, bathrooms, showers, and kitchen.
God is calling you to journey with Him, to share His love with the nations and establish His Kingdom on earth. Will you join Him in New Orleans?
Pray for New Orleans
Many opportunities remain for missionaries and ministries, church planting and pioneer work. Pray for good church-mission relationships, and for the hope of the Gospel to be the focus of the people in the midst of the recovery from travesties like mass-shootings and hurricanes.
