Many people tend to shy away from outreach efforts. One of Satan's greatest tools to keep the church from its duties of outreach is to stir up fear in the hearts of God's people.
This mission team will labor for Christ in the heart of the inner-city of Pittsburgh. If you are interested in developing your gifts as a youth worker or mission trip leader, this particular trip is particularly well-suited for you! This team will be comprised of 4-8 individuals with particular interest in growing in their leadership and discipleship skills while they labor these weeks overseeing various groups that will come in for one week service trips. If you, perhaps, are contemplating a calling into ministry, this trip could provide you with wonderful experiential learning in a variety of settings and tasks and may be used of the Lord to help confirm your sense of calling. You will work shoulder to shoulder with the local church leadership where you can glean insights into their various ministries and they can also come alongside you to help you grow in your capabilities to encourage and lead youth.
You will aid the local congregation with outreach to community children, engage in door-to-door ministry, provide help with community clean-up efforts and will aid with a Christian Housing project. Be a part of this trip to see Christ glorified in an area of His Kingdom that is ripe for harvest!
The local church leadership will invest their time and talents to train you for outreach in the community. You will be trained using a modified Evangelism Explosion curriculum and will spend many hours out in the inner city of Pittsburgh (Wilkinsburg) taking the most precious word of God to those in need. You will also help with an inner city youth club and may help this local congregation to clean up some empty lots for community use and recreation as a means of improving the area. In recent years the local community government has gifted several abandoned properties to the host church for renovation and utilization as part of their Christian Housing ministry. A property was recently obtained by the church and the church is looking for men and women who might lend a hand to helping remodel it. If you or someone you know has skills in construction/remodeling please encourage them to be part of this trip!
If you would like to overcome your fears of outreach, if you would like to grow in your boldness of proclaiming the gospel, this is a GREAT trip for you! Please apply before January 15, 2018.
