You want to take your youth to the next level with God. You want changed lives.
Imagine your youth group experiencing the world, listening to the voice of God, serving others, and making a real, tangible difference in the lives of others.
Imagine your youth group going to ...
New York is the ultimate destination for people to chase their greatest hopes and dreams. Whether for Broadway or business, visitors stream in from all corners of the globe. The largest city in the United States, more than 8 million people call New York City home. As the major port of entry for immigration, New York is one of the most culturally diverse areas of the US—as many as 800 languages can be heard in New York City. Will you share God's love in New York City?
While in New York City, you will join the First Church of the Brethren and their mission to reach the community with the Gospel.
Community Outreach: Your team will meet up with New Yorkers in one of the city’s parks, developing relationships and connecting with individuals from different cultures. You'll be able to share God's love through conversation with those who may not know Him. For those who feel forgotten or rejected by the church, you can connect them with a local church who cares. There is also the opportunity to serve food and join in activities at a senior day center.
Work Projects: You will have the chance to help clean parks and trails, remove fallen trees and brush, and plant new trees and shrubs.
Urban Plunge: On this trip to New York, you will experience the city as well as get to know the people who call it home. You can ride the subway, visit Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty, or ride to the top of the Empire State Building, while you live and share your faith.
The team will be housed in a local church with mattresses on the floor, bathrooms, showers, and kitchen.
Adventures in Missions has taken more than 115,000 people on mission trips around the world. Through various short and long-term programs, Adventures In Missions helps people from all walks of life discover the world, who Jesus is, and what Jesus has called them to: making disciples of all nations (Matthew 28) and being his witnesses to the ends of the earth (Acts 1).
What does Adventures offer youth leaders and participants?
Planned ministry — we coordinate all the ministry for your group with our ministry contacts or international bases in every location we send teams. We believe in fostering a lasting impact anywhere we send a team, therefore we only send teams where we have a strategic ministry partner or long-term base established.
Leadership — your trip will be lead by one to two project leaders, trained by Adventures, to take care of scheduling and logistics, and to serve as your main point of contact with us.
Freedom — your youth leader can be as hands-on or hands-off as they like! Planning worship, teachings, devotions, and free time is open for you to lead or can be passed to our Project Leader.
Logistics — we handle the details on the ground! Lodging, meals, supplies, and ministry schedule. We'll work with your group leader to make sure everything is organized!
Debrief — Adventures in Missions values the process. We will give your students the space to talk about and understand their experiences daily. They may see a part of the world they have never seen before, and our leaders will be there to walk alongside your group as they process and respond.
Devotionals — Adventures has created custom devotional journals to help walk you and your group through what they are experiencing on their trip. These devotionals will be mailed out to your group prior to your trip.
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 York?
