2020 Mission trip: Pittsburgh

Week of July 26 with Urban Impact in Pittsburgh

In 2020, Hope Youth will be serving with Urban Impact in Pittsburgh from Sunday, July 26 to Saturday, August 1.   Our service projects will most likely include Summer Day Camp activities with local children, housing and construction opportunities in North Pittsburgh homes, and neighborhood evangelism and clean-up. There will also be training specific to urban ministry and discipleship.

More details will be posted here after January 21 when they are finalized with the Urban Impact staff.  There will be a parent meeting before applications and a trip deposit are due.  All team members will be required to participate in all fundraisers, so mark your calendar for February 1 & 2 for our annual Souper Bowl fundraiser if you are planning on joining the team.  Students are also strongly encouraged to participate in Flower City Work Camp 2020 to gain some relevant experience.


Souper Bowl fundraiser details:  soup prep is on Friday, Jan. 31 from 3 - 6pm or on Saturday, Feb. 1 from 9am - 12pm.  Additionally, all team members should plan to help distribute soup after one of the weekend services on February 1 or 2.  Sign ups for all time slots here.




2019 Mission trip recap

Camp Concordia, Michigan, July 28 - August 2

Michigan 2019 tee

For 2019, a team of 40 Hope Youth and leaders served at Camp Concordia near Grand Rapids the week of July 28.  Although our day camp program for children of local migrant workers was canceled, the team worked on many projects for the camp to support their ministry.  We expanded their beach with a lakefront retaining wall, built a 120-fence to make the lakefront safer, and completed a trail as our main projects.  For 300+ photos of our week, please check out our photos here.  To see the trip video, click here.  Thank you to the many who supported us -- your prayers were felt!


All events (except 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.
