Summer mission trips

Each summer we encourage our students to participate in summer mission trips.  Our middle school students spend a week at Camp Lookout, on Lookout Mountain, serving in the Chattanooga area and participating in Camp activities.  Our high school students rotate each year between serving with Appalachia Service Project and having an urban mission experience.

Middle High Mission Week

June 4-8, 2018

Rising 6th - Rising 9th Grade Students

Camp Lookout, Lookout Mtn., GA

Each summer our middle school students have the opportunity to serve at Camp Lookout for Middle High Mission Week.  Middle High Mission Week is a fun week filled with service, new friends, lots of adventures, and quality time with Jesus.  Each morning our students have the opportunity to serve somewhere in the Chattanooga Area (Mustard Tree Ministry, Bethlehem Center, Chambliss Center, Widow's Harvest, Camp Lookout, etc.).  In the afternoons they get to enjoy all the fun camp has to offer.  We end each night with a time of worship.

The cost for each student to attend is $300.  Students should plan to sign up early because space is limited.  Once your student has registered, a non-refundable $25 deposit is due to reserve their spot.

High School Mission Week

June 24-30, 2018

Rising 9th Grade Students - Rising College Freshmen

Chicago, Illinois

We are excited to announce that this summer our High School Students will have an urban mission experience in Chicago, Illinois through an organization called City Service Mission.


While there our students will stay in the heart of the city, providing them the opportunity to learn the city and the unique issues and problems that Chicago faces. They will also learn about the unique and incredible things God is doing to foster and further His Kingdom through the indigenous organizations that operate on the front lines of urban ministry. We’ll learn what city dwellers face, and how to overcome challenging circumstances.

Our students will become part of the solution for Chicago. By offering their time, energy, and prayers, ministry sites are supported and built up to their full potential of service. They will be integrated into a variety of hands-on ministry opportunities to ensure that your time is spent supplying substantive help to God’s people in the city.

Each night our students will have the  opportunity to eat at local international restaurants and discover the delights of Salvadorian, Middle Eastern, Filipino, African–American, and other cuisine.

The cost for each student to attend is $450.  This includes the cost of housing, programming, food while in Chicago, and a portion of the transportation expense.  Students should be prepared to pay for 3-4 travel meals and any snacks or souvenirs they may want.

Space is limited, so students should sign up early.  Once your student has registered, a $50 non-refundable deposit is due to hold their spot.
