We believe that gospel outreach begins and ends with the verbal proclamation of the truth of Jesus Christ. Our aim is to express the truth and love of Jesus Christ with our neighbors intentionally and relationally.
Because we have been deeply loved by Jesus Christ, forgiven of our sins and reconciled to a holy God, we aim to share this reconciliation in word and deed with those who do not yet have a relationship with God.
Student ministry teams give high school students opportunities to meet the spiritual and physical needs of people in the United States in the name of Jesus Christ. Teams are sent in response to a request for assistance. Trips are designed to expose students to ministries and people who are intentionally proclaiming the good news of Christ, loving their neighbors, living as ‘salt’ and ‘light’ in the world (sustaining and improving living conditions and showing the world the glory of God by our patterns of living) and working for justice, peace and the common good in their neighborhoods.
This group of high-school students will plan a vacation bible school for youth, help with minor repairs and maintenance of facilities and grounds as well as get to know some neighbors through prayer walks. Our goal is to develop team members' hearts for evangelism and missions both globally and locally, grow individuals in understanding how to effectively minister to those in poverty and encourage the neighborhood through prayer and Bible study.
The team will be serving with through a summer day camp that includes leading bible stories, songs, outdoor games, tutoring games and crafts, bringing dignity to the children by listening to them and serving them through tutoring and having fun. The desire of South Asian Friendship Center for this week is to make new contacts and interact with kids attending the day camp with the hope that these children will integrate into the after-school program during the school year.
