Help the City of Brotherly Love live up to its name.
Where history and modern architecture meet, Philadelphia’s reputation for art and culture is unmatched. The city offers more outdoor sculptures and murals than any other American city, and life is returning to some disadvantaged neighborhoods.
But many areas of Philadelphia continue to struggle.
Close to half the city’s population lives below poverty level. The local church, stretched far too thin, remains the last hope for the homeless and urban poor.
You will partner with the Salvation Army in:
Kids Ministry: From playing with kids to running a VBS program, you'll be able to share God's love in a child's favorite language: fun.
Relational Ministry: Visiting local parks, meeting families, playing with children, and sharing Christ wherever you are.
Urban Plunge: Spend a day enjoying the tourist sites of Philadelphia - see the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, eat a Philly cheesesteak, walk through the oldest operating church in America, or run up the steps to the Philadelphia Museum of Art like Rocky - all while looking for opportunities to share Jesus with those around you.
This trip is for your student ministry if:
Your students love playing with kids
You love having your students serve alongside established ministries in reaching their communities
Your students have a heart for the poor and disadvantaged
You want to challenge your students to grow in their faith while sharing God's love with others
The City of Brotherly Love desperately needs the love of Jesus. Will you go?
