Participants will aid the local congregation with outreach to community children, engage in door-to-door ministry, provide help with community clean-up efforts and will aid with a Christian Housing project. Be a part of this trip to see Christ glorified in an area of His Kingdom that is ripe for harvest! This mission team will have the opportunity to be trained using a modified Evangelism Explosion curriculum and will spend many hours out in the inner city of Pittsburgh (Wilkinsburg) taking the most precious word of God to those in need. This team will also help with an inner city youth club and may help this local congregation to clean up some empty lots for community use and recreation as a means of improving the area. If you would like to overcome your fears of outreach, if you would like to grow in your boldness of proclaiming the gospel, this is a GREAT trip for you!
