Team Awesome is a loose collaboration of adults and youth that has managed to provide the youth of our church a fantastic mission experience every few years. Our first trip in 2009 took 3 adults and 7 youths to Pine Ridge, South Dakota. In 2012, the group visited New Orleans to help with Hurricane Katrina relief efforts. Most recently, the group has visited Pipestem, West Virginia.
Youths from the earlier trips have found them to be so rewarding, that they have taken the reins in helping to organize future trips, so that more children from the church can have the same opportunity to experience a world unlike the one they’ve known.
We haven’t decided where we’re going to go next, but we know it’s going to be Awesome!
