Millions visit our nation’s capital every year to learn about this country’s history. But just beyond the monuments, a city lies crumbling.
Every day we see images of Washington DC on TV. Leaders cast the vision for America’s future. Historians study and preserve her past. Landmarks and modern museums dot tourist maps, offering millions of citizens and foreign visitors alike a glimpse into what makes America unique.
If these sightseers looked just beyond the monuments, though, they would discover a desperate city plagued by poverty, substance abuse, and crime. Honest, law-abiding residents live in the shadow of fear and corruption.
You can bring peace and promise to the people of DC.
Your team will serve with a ministry in the heart of our capital where you’ll put Jesus’ love into action. Meet the homeless and the addicted. Listen to their stories. You can show them that grace and compassion are more than just words.
Bring hope to the hungry as you serve in a soup kitchen, and invest in the future of the city and our country by bringing love and joy to children in impoverished neighborhoods.
You can also take a cultural plunge in downtown DC, visiting The Smithsonian, a host of national monuments, and the three houses of government, all within a few blocks!
Washington DC is in crisis. Will you change the future for our nation’s capital?
