2016 Chicago Youth Mission Trip

Partnering with DOOR and guided by the mission statement “See the Face of God in the City,” we were excited to involve our youth in this urban mission experience where they were exposed to some of the realities of inner city life not unlike the ones found right outside the doors of their own church.

In the streets of downtown Chicago, FPC youth had the opportunity to partner with a variety of local agencies and ministries, to work alongside community members, to learn from local leaders, and to listen to stories of neighbors, clients, and churches.

Our students were challenged by the people and stories they encountered in ways that motivated them to consider service an essential daily part of living out an authentic Christian faith.
