SERVE

SERVE is a unique blend of community outreach and discipleship with spiritual transformation as the goal at every level. We believe this week-long experience can become a significant part of the life of all who participate, including the host churches, participants and those in the communities where we visit.

SERVE@Home

We have all have been given the command to love and serve our neighbors. But for many churches, a travel-based mission trip is not an option. This may be because of the COVID-19 pandemic, or there may be some other obstacles to travel. To address this need, Therefore Go Ministries has created a mission opportunity called SERVE@Home.

Help Youth and Emerging Adults Become Lifelong Followers of Jesus

Hearing and responding to God’s call on our lives doesn’t end at graduation, it’s a lifelong process. ThereforeGo is here to provide resources and advice for parents and church leaders to have rich and impactful conversations about calling, purpose and direction with youth and emerging adults.

FAQs

The fact is – your mission trip begins when you decide it does. If you are called to do good in the world, your fundraising should also at its core be centered in service.

Raising funds for a youth mission trip can be challenging, yet, keeping service in mind, there are many ways to meet your financial goals. You can..

  1. Auction off items donated by church community families and/or local businesses.
  2. Offer to host a Spaghetti Dinner night at your church – everyone likes homemade meal!
  3. A service board would allow church members to post jobs they need done with the price they’re willing to pay. Youth group members can then select and complete the jobs, with the proceeds going to your fundraiser.

Each trip, either long or short-term mission trip is unique.

You will need to read through what mission trips are available, and what they aim to do to improve the communities in which they witness.

ThereforeGo (formerly “YouthUnlimited”) provides opportunities for youth group mission trips in the USA and Canada.

This means we provide both domestic and international youth mission trips (because of COVID-19, all 2021 trips require groups to stay in their own country – learn more).

Specific destinations (we call them “SERVE sites“) include everything from larger cities to smaller towns in rural areas. And in 2021, we even have a mission opportunity for serving your own local community (called SERVE@Home).
