The Mission Team works throughout the year to develop, maintain and grow relationships in our communities and churches. They walk alongside each church group after registration through to the completion of your trip, sharing about each community, listening, answering questions and helping to prepare you well for your mission trip.
Y2P has the heartbeat to do missions differently. We are passionate about the experience students can have on a mission trip—serving others while encountering a living God who offers freedom and grace. We are passionate about communities thriving—developing from within and restoring dignity.
Why Mission Trips?
We really love youths and we deeply care about communities,
When done well, mission trips bring together the best of both worlds in ways that communicate Christ’s servant love, prompt growth and ignite passions. That’s work we want to be a part of!
Mission trips connect people with what God is up to all around them, and youths are an important part of what God is doing. The trouble is that sometimes they don’t realize it. Misplaced expectations, infinite distractions and disconnected values have turned the love and service that Jesus intended students’ stories to be about into a mere footnote. But mission trips invite students’ faith to their fingertips, allowing meaningful conversations about why service is essential to following Jesus. Mission trips invite students to be fulltime participants in God’s plan.
It changes perspectives, shapes passions and alters pursuits. It opens youths’ eyes to the incredible possibilities God has put in front of them. Mission trip experiences show youths how to use their lives to love and value others better. Mission trips equip and encourage students to go home and love the communities they travel into every day when they roll out of bed.
And God’s mission for us is far more than a trip. But we know, for many, living out that mission begins with a trip. That’s why mission trips will continue to be one of our work and our passion.
