Followers Mission Trip

Followers Trip

The youth in 7th through 12th grade have the opportunity to participate in a unique week-long summer experience. The purpose of this summer trip is to serve the Midwest community and build friendships: it is a combination of a mission trip and a choir tour.

Summer 2015: Hearts, Hands Hammer (H3), June 19-27
