WHO: Teens who have completed 6th grade through 12th grade:

These are our core group of students which we call "participants"! You'll stay Sunday night through Saturday morning for all activities throughout the week. Get ready for an awesome ride including work site days, games and activities, evening worship services, "reward day", community day, and so much more!

What to Expect
  • One week of the year: 24 hours a day 

  • Monday-Wednesday mornings and afternoons, participants work with adults and skilled adults to repair, paint, build, garden & clean homes for the disabled and elderly in our own community.

  • Evenings consist of free time, group game or pool, (showers!), dinner, worship, family time, and sleep (Think huge room, air mattresses, tired, but happy teens)

  • Thursday is Reward Day! Sometimes we go to the lake and sometimes we stay local. But we always try to make sure that there are a variety of activities available including for those who want to just rest on their "day off".

  • Friday we host Community Day at Brookside Park. We provide a variety of activities completely free for the community from food and clothing drives to kids' games and face painting. We also serve lunch, play uplifting music, and pray for our community.

  • Saturday we clean our host churches and vehicles and then hold one more worship service together before we wrap up the week.

FAQ: Frequently Asked Questions
  • Are there fees to participate?

    • No! The week is funded by TMJC, HOWEVER, we do ask that teens bring money for a dinner out on reward day (about $10-20). If that would cause undue hardship on your family however, please just let us know and we will make sure your teen is taken care of.​

  • How will we shower???

    • The past couple of years we have been blessed to be able to use a shower trailer for the week. Inside are individual stalls where you can get completely clean- no swimsuit needed. Please bring soap and washcloths, but PLEASE LEAVE ALL PERFUMES AND COLOGNES AT HOME. This really is a matter of life and death as we have individuals who are HIGHLY allergic to fragrances and have asthma.​

  • Is there a dress code?

    • Not specifically. We mostly ask that you use your best discretion when it comes to packing for teen mission, but if an outfit is blatantly inappropriate, we will ask the participant to change. A good rule of thumb is clothing that is weather appropriate and covers all bathing suit areas AND undergarments (approximately from shoulders to mid-thigh) with opaque material (not see through).​ We also ask that tank top armholes are of reasonable size and do not display undergarments.

  • Can I bring electronics?

    • No. In order to foster an atmosphere of community and time with God, we wil safely put away all electronics that are brought with any participant. This includes phones, tablets, computers, gaming systems, etc.​
