Montana Mission Trip

Please keep in your prayers our 20 youth and 4 adults joining Pastor Kessinger for the Mission Trip to the Crow Reservation in Montana. It is the fifth largest reservation in the country, and like many Native American cultures, the Crow people struggle with poverty and unemployment.

Serving in Crow Reservation:

  • Serve through painting, cleaning, yard work, or other simple work projects.
  • Plan and lead childrens programming for children in the community, including Bible lessons, games, crafts, and reading.
  • Plan and facilitate sports based programming for community youth.
  • Most students will serve at each service site for part of the week. Those who serve with the sports program will remain all week.
