Have you been wanting to take you students on an inner city mission trip in the U.S.? Have you been looking for ways to partner with the local church to do ministry that will have longer lasting impact after your team leaves? Baltimore may be the city you’ve been looking for.
City Church Presbyterian is a church plant in the historic Roland Park district of Baltimore City. Although we are a smaller congregation, we love to bring outside missions groups into the city to serve alongside of us with our diverse partners. Youth groups that have come in the past, have had the opportunity to work with inner city students from low socio-economic areas, clean up urban forests and green spaces, sort and deliver food for the poor, and clean apartments for mixed income housing projects. All the projects that we send students out on, are in partnership with local non-profits and organizations.
What to Expect
When it comes to logistics, missions trips can be a nightmare sometimes. Teams that come to City Church can expect housing at The University of Notre Dame Maryland, some dinner meals provided by the church, a meeting space to debrief and have worship, daily missions projects, free time to explore the city, a guided prayer walk, and a chance to worship with our congregation on Sunday morning. The idea is for missions to come from the church to the community for the glory of God.
We limit trip length to one week (Sat-Sat) but are open to doing shorter trips as well.
Housing costs $25 per person per night.
Meals cost $17 per person per day. For groups of less than 12 people it is $20 per person per day.
Generally, it figures to be around $375 per participant for teams under 12 people and $350 per participate for teams 12 an over.
We do not provide transportation. Transportation to and from daily projects is the responsibility of the incoming team.
T-shirts can be included in the price for an additional $10 per person or teams can provide there own.
Other miscellaneous costs will be included in the total number.
There will be 3 payment deadlines. A $500 deposit is due to reserve your spot. 1/2 the cost of the trip will be due 2 months out. The remaining 1/2 will be due one month out.
If teams would like assistance with worship music, members of the City Church worship are available to help out.
If teams would like to have a guest speaker from City Church, the Senior or Youth Pastor are available.
Recommendations for fun things to do during free time are available on request.
