912 Youth Summer Mission Trip 2019: Michigan

​Sunday, July 29 to Friday, August 2 at Camp Concordia

Camp Concordia
We will be serving at Camp Concordia near Grand Rapids, Michigan, from Sunday, July 28, to Friday, August 2.  (Sunday and Friday will be driving days and actual service days will be Monday to Thursday.)  This trip is open to students currently in grades 9 to 12 and active in Hope Youth. 

From Camp Concordia's website:  "Together we will continue to revitalize Camp Concordia through construction, service and repair.  Servants will train in skills & techniques to take on the challenge of revitalizing Camp Concordia's buildings and program areas.  This could include painting, construction, building repair, building bunks, roofing, etc.  Larger groups (20+) may have the opportunity to plan/run a 1-Day Camp experience for children of migrant workers and/or inner city children.  Servants will experience intensive team building during this Sunday through Friday servant event."  Please click here for a tentative schedule for the week and more pictures.

To apply, three items are due to Hope Youth no later than Tuesday, November 20:

  1. Hope Youth’s online application here
  2. Camp Concordia’s paper registration form, available to print out here
  3. A deposit of $100, either paid online here or via a check made out to Hope Church with “Youth Mission Trip” on the memo line

Please note that because space is limited and team members must be active in Hope Youth, this is an application (not a registration) and team members will be notified by December 1 of their final status — deposits will be refunded for any applicants not accepted to the 2019 team.

Costs and Fundraising:
Team members will not be charged more than $250, but it is anticipated that this cost will go down to $200 after our fundraisers.  All team members will participate in the following fundraisers:

  • “Souper” Bowl soup fundraiser:  February 2 & 3
  • Cinnamon roll fundraiser:  March 30 & 31

Other Dates to Know:

  • March 17:  second $100 payment due
  • May 12:  final $50 due (only if needed after our two fundraisers)
  • July 14 & 21:  Adopt-a-Servant
  • Saturday, July 27:  Team Commissioning at the 5:00 service
  • To be determined:  team meeting dates

Application and deposit deadline is Tuesday, November 20.

Adults interested in serving as Adult Leaders need only turn in the paper registration form for Camp Concordia and let Pastor Greg or Diana know that you are interested in serving as part of the team.


All Hope Youth events (aside from the weekly gatherings) require advance registration and a current Youth Participation Packet. Please let us know if emergency or health information changes.

It's been great to have a core group of guys you can hold yourself accountable, because a lot of times people always talk about finding a great group of Christian people, but then when you actually find Christian people and build a friendship with them the way God intends, it's one of the most significant things in a young person's life.
