International Drive (local)
Students learned about different countries through unique and hands-on experiences and by exploring art, music, architecture, and cuisine around the Atlanta area. For their service project with Children's Haven, they painted and distributed tote bags to children in the foster care system and also helped with cleaning and organization tasks.
Big Bend (national)
Students and leaders served and explored God’s creation in far west Texas at Big Bend National Park. The team volunteered with the Terlingua Family Crisis Center to make an impact in the lives of those who visit the food bank and thrift store. They also spent time hiking some amazing trails in the National Park. Students were responsible for various leadership roles within the team, such as meal planning, budgeting, food preparation, morning prayer and devotions, and basic trail first aid.
Ecuador for Jesus (global)
The team spent time with students and did a service project at JESSS International Christian Academy in Quito. They also spent time with patients in a cerebral palsy care center to help with various forms of therapy; distributed Christmas shoeboxes and shared the gospel with children in a poor community; and, visited Shell, the base for Missionary Aviation Fellowship, and helped repair the Nate Saint house.
