• Young People in Mission

    Young People in Mission is a camp experience with hands-on mission opportunities for youth and young adults between the ages of 12 to 24 at Lake Junaluska, North Carolina. Our hope is that this event serves as a launch to empower them to serve with new eyes and a heart for Christ. Each year, young people serve with local mission projects, worship together, fellowship and grow with family groups, dive into Bible studies, and learn from featured speakers and the City of Opportunity.

Team Openings

  • Dominican Republic

    June 13-20, 2015. Kim and Damon Bland have an opening for a mission to the Dominican Republic. The team will be working on a parsonage in Sosua on the northern coast. The church had plans to finish this project, however the pastor unexpectedly passed away last summer and they are supporting his family in assistance with medical bills, leaving a lack of funds to see this project to completion. If you feel your church or group can be a blessing, please visit www.dominicanrepublicmissions.com.

  • Guatemala

    July 11-18, 2015. Highland Support Project has long term relationships in the Highlands of Guatemala and helps organize women's cooperatives in local villages. Duncan Memorial UMC in Ashland, VA is committed to a long-term partnership with the people of this region and has expertise and interest in engineering projects. This mission opportunity is to assist a community that tried to address a flooding issue at their school by building a drainage culvert, though unfortunately now they have an open ditch through the school playground. The team will have an engineer design a cover and together with the community, they will construct the cover during the trip. There is not a minimum age but minors (under age 18) should be accompanied by an adult. The cost is $665 + airfare.
