Chicago is a world-class city that feels like home and exudes classic, Midwestern friendliness. In this town, your neighborhood defines you in a city that is very proud of its community.
Chicago is very cosmopolitan with people of all backgrounds and walks of life. Our ministry hosts have established deep roots of friendships with the residents in the areas where you will serve. You will be able to build off this foundation of trust and build your own relationships with locals.
Chicago has both a grit and a unique passion. Will you come, join the community, and share the love of Jesus in this historic city?
You will partner with a local church to share the hope and love of Jesus in a real and relevant way through a variety of ministry opportunities.
Here are some things you might be doing in Chicago:
Children’s Ministry: Serve with a daycare program, build relationships, play games, and possibly accompany them on field trips to the zoo, museum, and other fun locations.
Homeless Ministry: Hit the streets to build relationships with the homeless. This could look like bringing snow cones and setting up a game of checkers or sitting and getting to know people. Teams will also have the opportunity to serve in homeless shelters.
Work Projects: This summer, the church is building a playground at a local public school and your team may get to be part of the process.
You will stay onsite at the church and will have access to bathrooms and showers. Sleeping arrangements will be on the church floor, so bring your sleeping pad and blankets or sleeping bag.
Hotels are also an option, which we will arrange for you. This will come at an additional cost of roughly $25-$35 per person per day depending on the cost at the time. The earlier we can work with our hotel partners the better the chance is that the price will be favorable.
Your group is welcome to drive in or fly in. Chicago is home to a major airport with rental options as well. Parking is available on site.
Customize your mission trip
Work with our Missions Advisors to put together a mission trip that fits your group!
We work with you to understand your objectives and put together an experience that is specifically designed for your group. Our team takes care of logistics, ministry planning, debriefs, devotionals, and provides project leaders so you can focus on discipleship and showing your youth how to follow the voice of God and live for Him.
We want you to have a new experience with Jesus that dramatically encourages your relationship with Him. God has things to say to you! During our mission trips, we intentionally spend time to listen.
More than just setting up a trip, we want to become your partners in ministry.
The Holy Spirit is already doing a great work in your group; it’s our role to understand your needs and come alongside what God is already doing in a unique way.
Trusted local partners
All of our ministry partners, both overseas and domestic, have a history of excellence in hosting short-term mission teams.
All of our Project Leaders have been well trained and are specifically prepared to lead each group.
More than just designing an experience for your group, we work with ministry partners that have a long-term plan for sustainability. Your team will come alongside these efforts and can be confident that your service is actually helping.
It’s important to us that your group has an opportunity to connect with Jesus and what He’s doing, both around the world and here in the United States. It’s just as important to us that your experience happens in the context of a plan for sustainability. Our long-term missionaries and ministry partners are doing fantastic work every day. Your short-term mission trip will be specifically designed to support that effort while inspiring your group’s relationship with Jesus.
