  • Above all, we want everyone to be safe – safety glasses, ear plugs, for everyone.
  • Everyone must have an up-to-date tetanus booster and should bring sunscreen
  • Split into several adult-coached groups. Youth do the work (adults coach – youth execute).
  • Work may include building wheelchair ramps and decks, roofing, drywalling, painting, cleaning.  It’s primarily home repair/ replacement/ improvement type of work.
  • Sites will likely be within a half-hour or so.
  • Sites are arranged by Jackson Area Ministries and our host church.
  • Whenever possible, there is a lot of focus on building a relationship with the folks we meet and work for.

 Spiritual Situation:

  • Daily focus on a segment of our theme provides focus and topic of discussion.
  • Youth lead devotions with the adults.

Funding Situation:

  • Proceeds from the Christmas Greens sale.
  • Registration fee of $50 for each mission tripper (adults, young adults, and youth).  Scholarships are readily available, please see Curt.
  • In addition, every youth needs to sell $160 worth of stock.  That totals $210 per youth.
  • Adults and Young Adults don’t need to sell – already dedicating a week of their time.
