Serve The City: Summer Missions is an inner-city missions trip for students who want to make a real difference in their world. STC is not your typical youth trip! We don’t ask students to come and sit, sing and listen. At STC, we experience powerful worship, hear great messages, AND THEN take it to the streets, serving the people of Columbus to show God’s love in practical ways. The goal of Serve The City is to give students an opportunity to grow closer to God while developing a heart to serve those around them. Our goal and expressed mission is to “serve simply, love deeply.”
We believe that “small things done with great love will change the world.” Over the course of the week we will have multiple jam packed-services, trainings, and will be spending each day doing outreaches all over Columbus. Students can expect to be working with the elderly, homeless, disabled, kids, urban poor, and serving the people of Columbus and we will have an opportunity to show love well. Instead of just telling people about God’s love, we get creative in showing His love in practical ways. As a result of this week, we hope to rock your paradigms of “evangelism” or “outreach” so each student will experience a new freedom or possibly even be radically changed. We are praying that students who have attended Serve The City will go home with a new sense of missional living that inspires them to act, and a new set of skills and experiences that empowers them to impact others and especially their families.
Everything God does is by design and it's in the beauty of a relationship with Him that we discover nothing is an accident when He is moving. Join us this June as we discover what this means together.
