Student Adventure


12The Service Adventure is a short term mission trip for students ages 16 (by 6/1/2016) and up that challenges students to experience service and ministry on a whole new level. For two weeks this summer, your student can join participants from different countries as they come together for one purpose—to become better prepared to serve the Lord. Whether that means serving in your neighborhood, in another part of the world, or possible service through the Educational Assistance program for graduates, you will catch a lifelong vision of a world in need of Christ!  Students will have the opportunity to serve the Lord through serving others in need. Be challenged as they step out of their comfort zone and explore a different country and culture. Meet new people and make friends that will last a lifetime!

3Students will grow and be challenged along with their team members as they participate in training for ministry and learn to work together through team-building activities as you prepare to serve the Lord and the people of Thailand. Training for service will allow students to learn how to recognize and fulfill their unique calling by studying what it means to serve the Lord wholeheartedly. Inspiring evening devotions will challenge them to action through God’s Word, prayer, and Scripture memory. Preparation for service also includes practical classes and activities such as cross-cultural orientation, puppetry, language lessons, and school furniture construction skills.

Teams will enjoy getting to know the people as they minister, build student offices, paint, and do whatever they can to help these schools prepare for the new school year. Participants will have the chance to take part in sharing the Gospel through their testimonies. At the end of the Service Adventure, fellow students and leaders will enjoy a day of rest and debriefing. Debriefing is an essential part of the Service Adventure experience because it allows participants to make an overall self-assessment of physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual growth. This is a time for evaluating personal and group experiences, preparing a video presentation to share their adventure, and applying what they have learned to everyday life.
