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 …
Detroit is a bustling city filled with many people hungry for hope. A very difficult and widespread bankruptcy attacked this city when the auto industry moved out, causing people to lose hope. Once one of the most thriving, vibrant cities in the country, Detroit now struggles to rebuild in the midst of broken promises, loss, and poverty. It's a city in need of restoration and hope.
We partner with Detroit Love, a ministry deeply invested in growing and improving their city. You'll have the opportunity to join them in a variety of ways.
Youth/Children’s Ministry: Teams will help with the youth program – Big A. Kids play a variety of games in the gym (basketball, jump rope, 4 square and whatever other creative games your group brings). Teams will lead a few songs after everyone has arrived. After songs, students are divided into groups based on age (preschool, 5-9. 10-14 and 15 and up) and are led by the volunteer groups through 3 stations (story, games, craft and snack). The stations are approximately 15 minutes each. After the station rotation is complete, we gather back together as a large group for a calm closing song and ending prayer.
Work Projects: Mornings will consist of light construction projects such as painting, clearing brush, or helping around the Detroit Love building.
Community Outreach: As you live and serve in this community, you'll take part in reaching this community with the love of Christ, whether that's in conversations, prayer walks, or organized events.
The team will be housed in a community center with bunk beds, bathrooms, showers, kitchen, and wifi.
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 Detroit?
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.
