Summer missional experiences are a great way to show gratitude to God by offering care to our more vulnerable neighbors. The trips are also a fun way to get to know Westminster's members and friends across a variety of age groups.
Scholarship opportunities are available for every trip. If you have any questions regarding any of these experiences, please contact Jon Frost.
City Service Mission: Philadelphia
Throughout the week our youth serve alongside organizations and ministries which are rooted within communities in Philly. CSM immerses youth groups in urban life to help them understand the beauty and struggles of living in Philadelphia. It is truly a cross-cultural learning experience where students learn how God is already present and active in Philly. We participate in God’s kingdom through listening to the stories of communities, hands on service, and prayerfully reflect on what the good news of justice looks like in the face of injustice. For more info, contact Chris Clark.
Honduras Youth-to-Youth Partnership
The youth-to-youth partnership is the on-going friendship between Imago Dei Youth Ministry of Westminster and the youth of the Presbytery of Honduras. We strive toward mutual learning, honest dialogue, supportive friendships, and a shared mission as we follow Jesus in our communities. For more info, contact Chris Clark.
Living Waters for the World
Living Waters for the World trains volunteers to establish and lead water mission teams that partner with international communities to implement water purification systems and health education. Travel to Honduras with a team from Westminster for a week to build a water purification system and train local community members how to use the system. For more info, contact Jon Frost.
Second Wave Disaster Recovery Mission Trip
Teams of 16-22 people (18 years and older) participate in various construction projects for homes damaged in recent hurricanes. First Crew volunteers will once again lead a mission trip to assist flood victims in rebuilding homes and lives after Hurricane Florence hit North Carolina. Our trip to New Bern, North Carolina is scheduled for October 24 – 29, 2021. Our tasks mostly involve the refurbishment of the inside of the homes such as drywall and flooring installation and lots of painting. We will work in the New Bern, NC area. All gifts and talents are welcome. The main qualification is your interest in helping others in need. Each year about an equal number of men and women participate. Volunteers will be staying at Camp Caroline, in nearby Arapahoe, NC. If you are interested in learning more about this mission opportunity to serve others, please contact Bill Stewart or call 610-526-7250.
