Community Overview

Chicago is a world-class city that feels like home and exudes classic, Midwestern friendliness. In this town, your neighborhood defines you in a city that is very proud of its community.

Chicago is very cosmopolitan with people of all backgrounds and walks of life. Our ministry hosts have established deep roots of friendships with the residents in the areas where you will serve. You will be able to build off this foundation of trust and build your own relationships with locals.

Chicago has both a grit and a unique passion. Will you come, join the community, and share the love of Jesus in this historic city?

Top 3 Most Common Mission Trip Questions

Activities and Opportunities

You will partner with a local church to share the hope and love of Jesus in a real and relevant way through a variety of ministry opportunities.

Here are some things you might be doing in Chicago:

  • Children’s Ministry: Serve with a daycare program, build relationships, play games, and possibly accompany them on field trips to the zoo, museum, and other fun locations.
  • Homeless Ministry: Hit the streets to build relationships with the homeless. This could look like bringing snow cones and setting up a game of checkers or sitting and getting to know people. Teams will also have the opportunity to serve in homeless shelters.
  • Work Projects: This summer, the church is building a playground at a local public school and your team may get to be part of the process.
  • Refugee Ministry: As a gateway city Chicago has a large population of refugees awaiting confirmation of their official refugee status. You may have the opportunity to work with local churches to provide basic necessities like clothing (most only have what they could carry), showers, laundry, and meals to some of the many refugees in the city.
  • Response to Crime: Crime is a constant issue in large cities, and Chicago is no different. Response to Crime is an opportunity to visit a location where a violent crime occurred and reclaim that place in the name of Jesus Christ. If you choose to participate in this ministry, you will have the opportunity to pray for the victim, the perpetrator(s), their families, the first responders, and the community. You will also take communion together at the location to sanctify that space and wash the stain of violence from the land.

Sample Ministry Schedule

Alaska Schedule
Lodging

You will stay onsite at the church and will have access to bathrooms and showers. Sleeping arrangements will be on the church floor, so bring your sleeping pad/air mattress and blankets or sleeping bag.

Hotels are also an option, which we will arrange for you. This will come at an additional cost of roughly $25-$35 per person per day depending on the cost at the time. The earlier we can work with our hotel partners the better the chance is that the price will be favorable.

Meals

There is a full kitchen with anything you might need. Meals are very much a team effort, and we have a lot of fun in the process! Teams will participate in meal prep and serving. Breakfast will be cold cereal, fruit, bagels, etc. Hot breakfasts could be available as well, depending on the group’s willingness to contribute to the meal prep and cooking. Lunch will be packed sandwiches, fruit and a side to take to the ministry site. Hot dinners will typically be served after ministry at the church each day.

Travel and Transportation

Your group is welcome to drive in or fly in. Chicago is home to a major airport with rental options as well. Parking is available on site. Bringing vans is highly recommended. Groups will be required to supply their own transportation to and from ministry each day.

Health and Safety

The safety of our participants is a top priority for us. We have both an internal Risk Management team and external Risk Management consultants. We use a multi-pronged approach to risk management – including monitoring information from reporting agencies and relying on the knowledge of our ministry partners. In addition to our own protocols (e.g., students must be with an adult at all times), our ministry hosts and partners will provide trip specific safety guidelines for the particular trip location. Our Project Leaders are trained in risk management and have access to both on-field and home-office support.

Registration and Payment

$500 Deposit: This deposit is required to reserve your trip. At this point, you will lock in your trip and we will keep in touch with you going forward about preparation. This deposit is applied to the total cost of your trip.

50% Payment: Half of your total trip cost will need to be paid 3 months before your trip.

100% Payment: The remaining balance is due 2 months before your trip.

Project Leader

An adult Project Leader will be assigned to your team throughout the duration of your trip. They  will stay with you and your team, as well as engage daily with you throughout ministry and daily life activities. This leader will have strong missions experience, leadership experience and a demonstrated competence in the area of discipleship of youth and young adults. In most cases, your project leader will help with facilitating ministry, meals and daily debrief and devotional time. Your Project Leader will be assigned to your trip and you’ll have the opportunity to have conversations with them during the weeks leading up to your trip.
