Chicago is a legendary city known worldwide for it’s famous food, sports teams, street art, and diversity.
Youth groups will partner with local ministries to serve the unreached in Chicago that are starved for the gospel. Muslims, Hindus, Sikhs and many other religions work and worship in the same areas, making the neighborhoods incredibly diverse and with many open to the true God.
Students may participate in prayer outreach, park outreach and street outreach. They may also join team members to facilitate relationships in the neighborhoods.
Meet Our Partner – Apex
Apex is the student missions program for the Evangelical Free Church of America. “We exist to serve the local church by helping them mobilize the next generation of gospel influencers to take the gospel from here to everywhere.”
They do this by offering high school students—the most sendable and teachable part of our society—bite-sized mission opportunities. Students will be challenged by needs outside their bubble, equipped by long-term laborers, and impacted by the power of the gospel through a different cultural lens.
The students join long-term workers to gain experience as they learn from the city, strangers, workers, and each other
