Cleveland Mission Trip – Youth For Christ Day Camp – June 12-18

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, and many more throughout the great Cleveland area, who need the gospel!
  • The type of work we will be doing will help prepare us for sharing the gospel anywhere we go.
  • To build on last year’s continued success!

Dates & Leadership: Our trip will be from Sunday, June 11 through Saturday, June 17. 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 (YFC) of Greater Cleveland with Ashley Tengler as their point person; with YFC Puerto Rico, with Daniel Peal as their point person; and with South New Milford Baptist Church with Mike Eaton their point person. We will be putting on a 4-day, day camp (10am-5pm) for outgoing 6th graders- outgoing 12th graders.

  • Each day of camp 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 springboard into a stronger, growing presence in our community’s schools. We’re already seeing returns on last year’s investments!
  • Lord willing, we want to take this ministry to Puerto Rico next year.


  • Approximately $300 (depends on ministry supplies we need for projects yet to be determined)
  • One of our least expensive trips!
  • Fundraising will be available.
  • A $25 deposit is due by the first training (3/26) to secure your spot.
