How is CityConnexx different than other mission trips?
This unique experience provides your group with the opportunity to serve in America’s at-risk communities with a custom-designed mission experience. We will develop a schedule of activities and projects based on your group’s interests and talents and match them to the needs of a ministry site. Together, CityConnexx staff, the ministry site coordinator and your group leader will work together to ensure a successful mission experience.
What ages are recommended for CityConnexx?
Our custom program allows for groups of all ages. Typically youth groups will include students entering 7th grade in the fall through graduated 12th graders. However, college students, adult groups and families can be accommodated with our custom-designed mission program. Please note that supervision of infants or young children tends to detract from your experience.
If you bring a youth group, we recommend 1 adult chaperone per 5 students to provide the best experience for everyone, remember to bring female and male chaperones.
Do you offer anything other than week long mission trips?
Because we offer a custom mission experience, we can add or delete days to accomodate your schedule when needed. For those who are not able to join us for a week or want to test the waters, we may be able to arrange a weekend Micro Mission experience. Contact CityConnexx if you are interested in this option.
What dates are available for each city?
We don’t have set dates. Because each trip is individually focused on your group, you pick the dates. We have some wonderful ministry sites and since they depend on CityConnexx for their volunteer support, you pick the date, city and tell us your groups DNA. Then we will match you to a site that has those needs. You will not be combined with other groups, which leaves no outside distractions and total focus on making this a high impact serving opportunity for you and your group. It also allows us, jointly, to select age specific projects for your team. Middle schoolers, High schoolers and College students all learn and experience life in a different way. We want to work with you and our site to select age appropriate projects that help each person maximize their learning experience. We work with you to make sure there’s a great mix of work projects and relational outreach.
