Year-Long Opportunity

Mission Year

Mission Year is an opportunity to love God and love people through a year-long urban ministry program.  According to its website, "Mission Year is a year-long urban ministry program focused on Christian service and discipleship. We take teams of people, place them in an area of need, and help them to serve people and create community. We are committed to the command of Jesus to 'love God and love people,' by placing the needs of our neighbors first and developing committed disciples of Christ with a heart for the poor."  Learn more about Mission Year at www.missionyear.org
