Here's what Project Serve is all about:
Project Serve Calgary has the vision to build up a generation of servant hearts who understand the brokenness in their own city and are connected to various local organizations involved in applicable relief ministry. This summer Project Serve will be hosting local mission trips to expose, educate, empower, and engage the youth.
Expose -- To open the eyes of the youth to the needs and brokenness in their city.
Educate -- Training youth to practically work towards solving social injustices by partnering with established ministries.
Empower -- Providing youth opportunities to get involved with local ministries.
Engage -- To have youth fully engaged in service for long term local impact.
From past mission trips, we noticed how impactful a mission trip in the youth’s own city can be. Young people not only get the opportunity to see the needs within their own community, but are encouraged to continue volunteering throughout the year.
Therefore, our mission is to facilitate lasting relationships between church youth ministries and local charitable organizations in order to engage the youth in continuing compassionate service to those in need.
Who Can Sign Up.
Project Serve Calgary is geared towards churches that have existing youth groups and want the opportunity to serve in Calgary.
