Take part in an Urban Mission Experience
The Board of World Mission invites you to take part in an urban immersion experience. The group will stay in a mission house on the campus of Chicago's Lutheran School of Theology. Two days of volunteering with local organizations will give a chance for participants to learn about the ways poverty and inequality uniquely manifest themselves in urban settings.
Day 1: Arrive Chicago late afternoon / early evening for team building and orientation
Day 2: Serve at local ministry or social service sight
Day 3: Serve at local ministry or social service sight
Day 4: Final wrap up and head home
The winter break experience is geared towards high school and college aged youth. Other dates available upon request for older individuals and other groups. If you have a group interested in a mission experience in Chicago, please contact the BWM and we can begin to work on dates.
This experience has limited availability, and we request interested individuals (even preliminarily interested) be in contact as soon as possible!
The experience will cost participants $150. This includes all housing, food and transportation once participants arrive in Chicago.
