Sharing God's Love and Acceptance with YOU!

Join Us For our 2023 Youth/FAMILY Summer Mission Trip!!!


Join this summer for a 1-week mission trip experience in Oklahoma where we immerse ourselves in Native American culture, heritage, and daily life. We will be working with one or more Indigenous Tribes located in Oklahoma through our sister Methodist Conference, the OIMC (Oklahoma Indian Missionary Conference). Not only will we be working
with tribal peoples on projects, but we will also be blessed to visit cultural centers, see traditional dances and demonstrations, and eat traditional Native foods. It is our hope that everyone gains just as much as we are giving through our service. As a Chickasaw of Oklahoma and a passionate advocate for Native American peoples, Pastor Chad hopes you will join him on this trip.

June 19 - June 25

We will be helping with El Reno Indian Fellowship of El Reno, OK. The grounds are in need of maintenance and cleaning and the building of repairs and some TLC.  The pastor has many small projects that the youth group could tackle. There would also be some lifting, sorting, and reorganizing as well in some of the buildings.
