Youthworks Mission 2018- Rapid City (Grades 6-9)

June 24th - June 29th, 2018


This summer...we're packing our bags and heading out to be the hands and feet of Christ in Rapid City with YouthWorks!

DATES: June 24-29th

COST: $650 (With many fundraising opportunities available!!!)

DEPOSIT: Secure a spot with a $100 non-refundable deposit due by January 31st.


We will partner with local organizations to meet needs throughout the community. We might serve at a food shelf, a clothing distribution center, a soup kitchen, an elder care facility, or at a children's program... or any mix of these!

One evening, we will visit both Mount Rushmore and the Crazy Horse Memorial, and on another night we get to participate in the largest cookout in the western region of YouthWorks!


YouthWorks exists to connect teenagers to God, each other, and communities through life-changing Christ-centered mission trips. They seek to empower every teen to know God and be like Jesus in the ways they love and serve others, with the same desire for churches, families, staff, and communities.


Set against the slope of the Black Hills, Rapid City is also surrounded by Mount Rushmore, the Crazy Horse Memorial, Custer State Park, and Wind Cave Park. Founded in the era of the Gold Rush, and now home to more than 68,000 people, this is the second most populous city in South Dakota. Students traveling with us this summer will not only get to experience the City, but will learn much more about the importance of the Black Hills region to the Lakota.

At Shipwrecked, one memorable Bible Point is reinforced throughout each station, each day—making it easy to apply long after VBS is over.

Join us as we sing, experiment, play and learn more about the One who rescues us, no matter how big the storm. 'Shipwrecked' runs from 6-8pm every evening starting on Sunday, July 22 and ending on Thursday, July 26. So come dive in with us, and bring a friend!

Boundary Waters 2018

July 30th - August 4th, 2018


Do you like to be outside? Good cause we are going camping!!

July 30th -August 4th

We will be outfitting with Gunflint Trail Lodge. This is right outside of Grand Marais, a beautiful town along the North Shore of Lake Superior. The group will spend two nights in a lodge, the night before entering the boundary waters and a night after we come out. That gives us three nights of canoeing, fishing, swimming, and camping in the wilderness of Minnesota.
