The Fields are Ripe for Harvest in the Inner-City. Will Your Serve?
A team of 10-15 young adults will spend six weeks serving a church in Wilkinsburg, an inner city community of Pittsburgh. This team will have opportunity to participate in missions in urban settings. The congregations have asked that the team help organize and implement vacation Bible schools and door-to-door evangelism as well as help organize and carry out some other community outreach activities. Team members will also get opportunity to participate in ministry to the aged at the Christian nursing home. This team will also help with a Kid's Club program for inner-city youth and will be trained in the Evangelism Explosion method of outreach.
In addition, for those with some construction skills, there is a recently started Christian housing ministry that refurbishes abandoned homes with a view toward providing affordable Christian housing to families that are new in to the Christian faith.
