We are there to live out Christ and be ready to share Jesus. After leaving the ship on the last day the team will debrief and work at the GM center that afternoon, returning to Jonesboro the next day.

brooklyn, ny - Park slope community church 

Loving Our Neighbors & Loving God

April 18-23, June 6-11, & October 10-15, 2019

Vision: This team will engage with children and their parents in our neighborhood by serving in areas of ministry with in PSCC or by serving in the Coffee Shop Ministry to share the love of Christ.

Overview: The church first started in 1860's as Dutch Reformed, became an SBC church in the late 1960's. The congregation peaked at around 40-50 people in the early 2000's. Numbers aren't everything; however, we have been able to enjoy watching the Lord grow our little congregation over the past few months from 9 people to averaging in 50-60 each Sunday and 60-70 in some type of discipleship each week. As a part of NAMB's Replant program, our team, led by Sterling Edwards, has been excited to see the response that simply "loving our neighbors and loving God" has created. We are becoming a haven for questions our neighbors have about faith. We could sit down with atheists, agnostics, even Hindus and share Jesus with them. It's so encouraging to see the Lord drawing our neighbors to Himself.

Park Slope is a very affluent, low crime neighborhood. It has been listed as one of the top 5 most desirable neighborhoods in NYC. Spiritually, there is a darkness that is apathetic to religion of any sort. Nearly half of our neighbors would consider themselves not affiliated with ANY religion. With 120,000 people within 1 mile of the church, we are employing ways of demonstrating the Gospel to many who have no prior knowledge or experience of Christianity. Team members who come to serve with us will be involved in various outreach opportunities that "show" the Gospel to our neighbors

Logistics: Travel to NYC is by air to LaGuardia, then by bus and subway. You can walk up to 3 miles a day so be in shape. Food will be in fast food places as other restaurants can be prohibitive. All inner-city travel will be on foot or by subway.

Team Size: 4-6 people

Price: $1,300 Includes airline, on the field housing at the church, on the field land travel, and travel insurance. Does not include meals. Application plus 10% deposit required before team airline reservations can be made.

montana indian reservation - pow-wow project

July 23-30, 2019

Vision:To show the love of Christ to Indians at a Pow-wow through serving them by picking up trash, prayer walking, and serving them free coffee and water

Overview:Imagine seeing a tribe of Indians in full-decorated outfits, living in tents, in a 2-day dance competition in the rolling plains of Montana. You will get to put up your own authentic tent that will sleep 6, eat some fry bread, and enjoy living among Native Americans for a weekend. You will be warmly received as you serve them free coffee or water.  Lying on the counter will be an evangel cube. Their curiosity will open doors for you to explain what it is.  You can respond by simply saying, “Oh it’s a story of how Creator God loves you and wants a relationship with you.” You continue serving coffee and some will ask, “Well, I want to hear the story!” Every few hours you will rotate from serving coffee, to picking up trash, to prayer.

God has used Bruce Plummer to be an effective missionary that has brought the gospel to the Indian culture and have seen over 1,400 adults come to Christ in the last 12 years. Through service projects like picking up trash and serving free coffee and water to the participants at Pow-Wows it has opened the gospel to many. You get the opportunity to see God at work.

Price:$1,250 Price includes rental cars, lodging in hotel and at camps, meals at the camps, airfare, and travel insurance. Does not include meals en route to and from the field or at airport. Application and 10% deposit reserves your space!
