Possible projects may include light construction, painting, yard work, and gardening, to name a few. Our community has many local ministries and non-profits with which we will be partnering.
Fort Collins is considered to be one of the best places to live in Colorado! Resting at the base of the Rocky Mountain foothills, we’re surrounded by blue skies, over 300 days of sunshine, and biking/walking paths that meander throughout our city of 168,000 people. We are home to Colorado State University, where the Poundre River runs through our dynamic Old Town (the inspiration for Disney’s Main Street, USA), tech industry and artistic hubs, and many natural areas and parks. Be ready to build relationships as you serve those in our community and dive right into being the hands and feet of Jesus.
Our facilities include an air-conditioned, 2-story Annex building with numerous spacious classrooms and one shared bathroom per floor. Showers will be off-site.
The main church building houses the sanctuary, common areas, additional bathrooms, and kitchen. Outdoor areas include a lawn, playground area, large parking lot, and community garden.
Our day away will be enjoying all that the spectacular Rocky Mountains have to offer!
Registration fees do NOT include transportation to and from the sites. Each church group must provide vehicle(s) and adult driver(s) for the entire mission experience regardless of whether you fly or drive to the site. The vehicles you bring will be used to transport small groups to the work site each day, so 12-passenger vans or mini-vans are preferred. Cars do not facilitate the transportation of an entire small group in one vehicle, so please do not bring them. If you wish to bring a bus, please check with the Host Team to see if this is acceptable before you make arrangements. If your group is unable to provide van transportation, please have a youth leader call the ThereforeGo Ministries office to discuss options and additional charges.
Denver International Airport (DEN) which is about 70 miles south of Fort Collins. Please DO NOT book airfare until you have received email confirmation from ThereforeGo Ministries that you have been placed at this site.
Fort Collins is roughly 5,000 feet above sea level – which means we’re not only closer to the sun, but the altitude CAN affect those who aren’t used to it. So plan on staying VERY hydrated and wearing your sunscreen!
