HS Serve Jamaica 2021

ABOUT

We desire for our HS Students to be Mission-minded, meaning to be intentional with the love of Christ! Our HS Mission strategy is designed to provide unique partnering opportunities with local, national, and international missions. In addition, we encourage and challenge our HS students to be missional in every aspect of their daily lives.

 

HS Mission Jamaica teams with Won by One to Jamaica, a mission organization dedicated to help the rural, mountainous region of Harmons, Jamaica. Under the direction of Won by One, we will construct and repair houses for the local community, sort supplies for the mission store, and serve the people in the Harmons area. This will be a strenuous, work-oriented mission trip.

 

Our strategy is to provide this international mission opportunity every two years. Since there are limited spots available for students and adult sponsors, we give preference by grade. If the trip is full, we will notify you and return the deposit check.
