Cleveland Mission Trip July 19-24

Why Cleveland (Parma/Parma Heights)?

  • To work to fulfill Acts 1:8 and Reach our Jerusalem.
  • There’s great need. There are thousands of people living within blocks of our church who need the gospel!
  • The type of work we will be doing will help prepare us for sharing the gospel anywhere we go.

Dates & Leadership: Our trip will be from Monday, July 19 through Saturday, June 24. The trainings and fundraising will be coordinated by the Youth Ministry Team. The trip will be led by our Youth Ministry Team with Matt Vince as point person.

Travel & Accommodations: We will be staying here at the church. This allows us to keep our expenses down, so that a greater majority of funds raised will go directly to serving our community and spreading the gospel.

Ministry Opportunities: We are partnering with Youth for Christ with Ashley Tengler as point person. We will be putting on a 4-day, day (10am-5pm) camp for outgoing 6th graders- outgoing 12th graders.

  • Each day will have a specific focus on 4 key elements of the Gospel message
  • There will be a band to lead in worship and to help energize campers each day
  • This will provide opportunities to connect with students in our immediate community
  • We will also have an opportunity to partner with other members of The Church to help make this evangelistic event successful during the week and beyond
  • We are praying and expecting this to be a spring board into a stronger, growing presents in our community’s schools.


  • Approximately $200 (depends on ministry supplies we need for projects yet to be determined)
  • One of our cheapest trips
