To do this we are committed to raising up and supporting a foster care family at Rising Church by providing meals, meeting special needs, providing childcare, and prayer.

Partners in India

To accomplish our mission the Path Project operates community centers where we offer programs such as after-school homework help, literacy-rich opportunities, mentoring, and soccer (with our FCA Soccer partnership).
Young Life | Athens

Kids’ lives are dramatically influenced when caring adults come alongside them, sharing God’s love with them.

Young Life wants every kid, everywhere to experience the message of hope in Jesus Christ.

Bayou La Batre
The Bayou La Batre trip is a great introduction to missions and serving for our middle school students (6th-7th grade completed). This trip is an awesome opportunity for students to step out in faith and grow deeper in their relationship with God and each other through fulfilling the Great Commission. We will partner with Youthworks, a fantastic organization that we have worked with for the past 10 summers and spend our time working with local kids programs, visiting the elderly and doing service projects around the community.
We are heading to Washington DC this summer to get an insight as to what inner-city mission work is like. We will be serving the needy within the community and helping them by meeting practical and spiritual needs.
Peru – Level 3 & 4
Getting to go to a country in South America is an opportunity that very few people get in their lifetimes. It will be a great experience as we serve the people of Peru and show the light of Jesus to people who are in need. The country is beautiful and the work is incredibly important, so there is ample reason to make sure that this trip is attended.
YL | Haiti
Haiti is the poorest country in the western hemisphere. Close to half the population, under the age of 20. This is the landscape that Young Life leaders enter.
