Change the City, Change the World.
World Changers is a ministry of LifeWay Student Ministry designed to engage students as construction volunteers. At World Changers, your students will be involved in basic home repair, community building, worship and they will receive practical training. They will make a difference in the lives of the those who reside in the greater Fresno area.
Where are we serving?
Our mission site will be Fresno, CA. The city hosts will educate and guide us through this project. We will be staying at the Fresno Rescue Mission.
What will we be doing?
Students will learn to put their faith into action as they work on a disadvantaged resident's home and share the love of Christ through their service. They will be challenged to adopt the on-mission lifestyle when they return home. They will also be called to move beyond a one-week experience to a deeper level of commitment in their relationship with Jesus Christ.
Drop off – June 27 (TBD AM)
Pick Up – July 2 (TBD PM)
Why are we going?
Regardless of age, Jesus Christ calls us and equips us to be His witness to the World. He chooses to work through us. Through our obedient service we will show His love and make an eternal difference in the community by providing home improvements. Also, and just as important, the students’ hearts and lives will be changed. Students are always amazed as they see the need in the world, come to understand the importance of missions, and realize that they can make a difference! This will be a life-changing week.
