One of the most amazing things you can do is to work with children! They are trusting and learning to be what God designed them to be. We have a unique opportunity to work with “at risk” children in our community directly and through several area ministries.
After School tutoring or summer kids programs provide an opportunity for your team to stretch as they show compassion for kids that do not know what it is like to have a mom and dad.
Many of them have never had any thing they could call their own. Make a difference by serving on a missions trip for under privileged kids!
The rewards working with kids are great and the challenges are many. We have built a strong relationship helping to support the work of the Youth Center and if you love kids, or are majoring in child education, Missions through Epic Missions will be one of the outreaches for your teams' Mission trip.
During the school year, childrens programs run in the afternoon and start with tutoring the kids in various subjection a one on one basis. Later in the afternoon, we have activities, movies, Nintendo, etc… Real opportunities exist to get to know these kids and be a model to them of Christian love and compassion.
When teams come in from Epic Missions, the kids recognize us by our tee shirts and often cheer upon our arrival. You can even bring your team to play basketball in a pick up game against the kids and see what you're made of!
