Atlanta, GA

Atlanta, GA

Missions in Atlanta is an 8-day ministry trip led by Joshua Expeditions. We will partner with established ministries in the metro Atlanta area where we will have the opportunity to participate in homeless ministry, evangelism, refugee ministry, construction work, children’s ministry, and ministry involving people recovering from human trafficking. The goal of this trip is to help students grow in love for people of various cultures and circumstances, to live out that love in tangible ways, and to grow in love for God and how he is at work in our world. Students should be able to sensitively engage with a broad, at-risk demographic, should be able to emotionally and physically handle full days immersed in a different culture as they engage people with difficult circumstances, and should have a willingness to do physical work in addition to interpersonal ministry.

Colorado

Colorado

The phrase “Go West Young Man” originated from 19th century when the concept of Manifast Destiny was prevalent – the idea that America was destined to someday reach from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean. This phrase has also been used to describe an adolescent as they go from boyhood to manhood.
Adventure trips are designed to teach students and skills in a hands-on adventure environment. The very nature of this trip is that we will be spending a lot of times outdoors. There will be both strenuous tasks as well as leisure physical activities. We also have a strong emphasis on what it is like to grow up, and we want to teach the students some basic life skills, such as living with each other, resolving conflict, cooking food, and budgeting. We can’t wait to have you!

Civil Rights

Civil Rights

Bryan Stevenson says that the best way to understand something different is to “be proximate” to that thing – we will be proximate in our ideas and travels to the historic and present Civil Rights movements. And as Emmanuel Acho says “have a conversation” the goal of our time will be to dialogue with people of the past, our classmates, guests, and people we meet so that an experience not our own can begin to become our own, so that we might live more rich and intentional lives.
