Mission Trips 2018

We have week long trips planned for our 7th - 12th grade youth next summer!

Spend a week this summer shaking up your regular routine. Join other Mount Olivet youth, friends, and leaders to build community - we will live out our call to love our neighbor and seek justice - while taking a step or two outside our comfort zones.

Milwaukee, WI with YouthWorks

Grades: 7th - 8th

Dates: June 24 - June 29

Cost: $500*

You’ll have the opportunity to serve alongside some great organizations that are working to support the Milwaukee community.

One of these is Scott Christian Community Center, which houses a food pantry and clothing giveaway service. Another organization you’ll serve alongside is Gingerbread Land, a neighborhood beautification organization. You may also serve at elder care centers or a soup kitchen.

In the evenings, you’ll have the opportunity to participate in a church service, go to the beach of Lake Michigan and hear from a community friend who works with teenagers and adults growing up in the inner city.

Denver, CO with CSM

Grade: 9th-12th

Dates: July 21 - 28

Cost: $625*

CSM Denver is proud to partner with many agencies and ministries around the city that are willing to use their voice on behalf of those who are ignored or cannot speak for themselves. Everyone has a story and deserves a chance to share. When CSM participants visit Denver they have the opportunity to partner with several of these ministries. They will serve at places like the Denver Rescue Mission and be able to put a name to homelessness by serving and eating alongside the patrons.

Our desire for groups that come through Denver would be that they would be more than tourists for a week. We want them to reach out, touch and experience the city in unique ways. They may find themselves in touristy places like down along the 16th street pedestrian mall, but instead of shopping they will be looking for ways that they could meet a need for someone they might normally pass by.

Total cost per student amounts are pre-fundraising. Many youth are able to raise funds for part or most of their cost. Check out the Mission Trip Handout for trip and fundraising details.
