there will be   TWO  dsm trips in 2015!
JUNE 29 - JULY 3

This will be the 5th year of DISCIPLE SUMMER MISSION.

In 2011, nearly 80 of us gathered in Midland, Texas. We worked on houses, spent time with senior adults in nursing homes, and in after school programs with low-income children. In 2012, more than 140 traveled to northwest Arkansas to serve the communities of Rogers, Bentonville, and Fayetteville. We also crossed the border into Missouri to join the continuing efforts to rebuild Joplin. We served senior adult families, homeless shelters, and helped to cross off items from the overwhelming

to-do list of Americorp.

In the summer of 2013, we traveled to New Orleans. We worked with the Epworth project in Slidell, LA. Great community was not only built among the 326 youth and adults that attended but also with homeowners. We painted, built ramps, and put insulation and drywall into homes that were still recovering from Hurricane Katrina. Each year has been filled with meaningful work, growing community between multiple Disciples of Christ churches across the Southwest Region and beyond.

Last year, we headed to Oklahoma City, OK.  Over the course of three days, our group of nearly 350 youth and adults from 28 churches in 7 states fully transformed the exterior of 30 homes with a fresh coat of paint. The community that gathered together was impacted mightily by our shared work, by our time together at the Oklahoma City Memorial & Museum, and by the many lives which were changed as a result of being the recipients of God’s grace...both the homeowners and the missionaries.

Due to the overwhelming response we continue to experience to our summer mission projects, Disciple Summer MIssion has made the step of faith to host TWO TRIPS in 2015. The DSM leadership team has committed to hosting a trip to both Albuquerque, NM and Nashville, TN.

Both trips will take place June 29 - July 3.
