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.
