Atlanta Mission Immersion, June 8-15 & June 12-14

Updated: Jan 31, 2019



We are heading to Atlanta this summer for a 7-day and 4-day mission immersion. Wait, what? That’s right, we are creating an experience to accommodate those who cannot take off work for a full five days and those who have young children unable to sustain a week-long trip. The 7-day team will depart on a Saturday and return on a Saturday, while the 4-day team will depart on a Wednesday and return on a Saturday.


Partnerships & Work

The projects will include work with children, minor construction and repairs, social ministries, indoor and outdoor work, and meal preparation.

We will be partnering with the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, Project Open Hand, Georgia Avenue Food Cooperative/Urban Recipe, Gateway Center, and various non-profit organizations and ministries.

All participants will have the opportunity to serve based on his/her age and giftedness.

Most days of work be 9:00 am to 3:30 pm, with a lunch and other breaks incorporated into the day. We will setup a shorter and realistic work schedule for young children.


Cost Breakdown

Trip expenses will vary based on the trip timeline options and age of the participant. The trip fees will cover lodging, most meals, and trip related expenses.

4-Day Trip (Wednesday – Saturday)

$85 per participant (10 years old and older) $60 per child (9 years old and younger)

2-Step Payment Process

Fundraising

Our goal is to raise enough to discount each person’s trip. The proceeds from the February Gumbo-Off will benefit the mission immersion participants. Additional fundraising opportunities are being planned.

Financial Assistance (partial and full) is available upon request and is kept confidential.


Logistics

Transportation

Large passenger vehicles, as well as additional personal vehicles, will be used to transport the group to Atlanta and around the various partnerships. Individuals who choose to drive separate in vehicles not needed for the trip, will be asked to cover his or her own gas.


Lodging

We will be housed at Park Avenue Baptist Church Lydia’s House. The group will be divided up into three large rooms, based on gender, with bunk bed sleeping accommodations.

Additional smaller rooms are available for families with young children or individuals with personal needs.

There is an additional option of renting a home for the group based on the final date of the trip and number of participants.


Expectations

We are looking for participants who are willing to serve, grow, be stretched, and learn.

Please be prepared to be with the team the entire trip. These trips are not designed for individual or small group outings. All team members will be expected to work and participate in group activities.

To receive assistance from fundraising initiatives, each individual participant is expected to assist with the various events.

Each participant will be expected to attend team preparation meetings.
