Youth Missions


Our youth have been involved in local outreach projects such as cleaning an elderly Kettering woman's home and helping the adult missions team with the renovation of a local family's kitchen.

But annual week-long mission projects have become a tradition in our youth program. Every summer the youth reach out in service to other parts of the country. They've been to Mountain T.O.P. (Tennessee Outreach Project) several times. They've served in inner-city Pittsburgh. They've ministered on a Sioux Indian Reservation in South Dakota, and they went to New Orleans to help with the Hurricane Katrina disaster relief efforts. They've been to Chicago and Tampa, Florida, and this year they served at Lee University in Cleveland, TN sponsored by Student Life.

Doing for others is integral to the training and experience of the youth who are involved at Church of the Cross.
