OUR MISSION

For years, students from Westminster have partnered with Youth Works to complete mission work across the country. This year might hold the largest opportunity for service yet!

Anyone who has had the opportunity for mission work knows the value of such trips. Students not only learn to love and serve their neighbor, but they also regularly encounter God in this obedience. We've watched students awaken to their own blessing and discover new ways of sharing their resources with others.

This year will be no different. God will no doubt be glorified and served.

We are, however, striking out on our most costly and adventurous trip yet. This year, 15 students and leaders from Westminster will be traveling to Puerto Rico to serve in the city of Arecibo (50 miles west of San Juan).

We haven't lied to these students. They know this trip will be hard. They'll sleep on floors and pour out sweat. They'll be made uncomfortable and need to learn new cultural sensitivities. But they're ready for the challenge. And they're asking for your help to get there.

...

OUR PROMISE

(1) For every $25 donated to this page, students will have to consecutively fast one hour of screen time. That means NO Video Games, NO TV, NO Computers, NO Social Media for however long your dollars support the fast. They will use the days/weeks without screens to pray and prepare for this mission trip.

(2) Students will give their all to the mission opportunities Youth Works provide us. 

(3) Students will remain open to seeing God at work, both in the lives of those we serve and in our own hearts as He reveals Himself to us.

(4) And students will have some fun along the way. After all, we tell our youth all the time: "Life with Jesus is the most adventurous you'll ever be offered."

...

THANK YOU for your support and helping this team make it on an unforgettable journey. Your funds will go to good use with this group of high schoolers, and we'll do our best to keep everyone updated on the trip!

Woooooaah OOooohhh! Half Way There!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you to everyone helping this take off. We are over half way to our goal!

As you help us close in on $5,000, we are wrapping up details for the trip. We even just booked our stay and rental cars for the trip!

To give an idea of the importance of your donation: this trip is going to total over $1600/student. Students are paying $333 of that while the church is aiming to cover the rest! YOU are thus helping Westminster Church subsidize over $1200/student. Without your help, students would unlikely ever get such an opportunity for such an affordable price. For many of the kids going, this is the only way it would ever be possible!

We do all of this together because we know–we know that mission trips both serve the needs of others and effectively change the lives of those who get to serve. Thank you for helping make that happen! God will honor your gift as He works in and through the lives of these students.

A GREAT START

Hey, we're already 10% to our goal! Thank you everyone! Our students are so excited by your support. 

We ALSO just learned what a couple of our mission projects will be. We will likely be helping out on a community farm that helps give away food and teaches kids/adults new skills. In addition, there is still a lot of hurricane relief needed in Puerto Rico. There's a good chance Youth Works will be putting us on some clean-up projects too.

Thanks for your support. This trip will undoubted change these students' lives.
