August 2-8, 2021 Mission to Chicago Dream Center
We are now accepting applications for our August 2 thru August 8, 2021 mission trip to serve the needy people in the Chicagoland area. Deadline to sign-up for this trip is July 6th.
The team will be taking 36 youth and adults to the Chicago Dream Center (Humboldt Park community) for a week of serving low-income people and at-risk children. This trip is perfect for youth groups looking to do something “locally” and still get the opportunity to serve the Kingdom Of God in an impactful manner. Wilfredo “Choco” DeJesus who was the Senior Pastor of New Life Covenant Church at the time founded this ministry. More details will be distributed, as the trip gets closer.
The team will be staying at the housing center near the ministry site.
Chicago’s culture is very diverse. The ministry area which this team will serve is largely Hispanic.
Chicago weather in the summer is usually warm and humid.
While traveling to Chicago, we want to give you some helpful tips to prepare you for your trip.
