“Developing great commission adults by providing students exposure to missions.” 

God was, is, and always will be intentional. He has a plan to love, save, and care for people (John 3:16). He has a plan to grow and transform people (2 Corinthians 3:18). He has a plan to reach out to us and other people – and we are a part of that plan (Matthew 28:18-20). 

And so, we look forward to opportunities to Experience God and play a part in Expanding His Kingdom. We have found from many trips to several different continents that the ‘expanding’ that happens is both personal and ‘others’ oriented. In other words, mission trips are ‘two-way’ trips. We go, love people, and we are transformed. People encounter a group of students from Pittsburgh and they are transformedIt is with this excitement and expectancy of experience and transformation that Student Ministries launches the trip details for Summer 2020.  We hope you will journey with us as we experience God and expand His kingdom!

We invite 6th and 7th grade students to join us for our Summer Mission Opportunity in Northeast Ohio. RE:Lease is a multi-church, week-long mission trip to the children of Ashtabula, Painesville, and Cleveland. During Re:lease, we will equip your teens with lots of great truth-sharing tools-Evangecubes, songs, skits, and games-then we'll send them out to share Christ in the neighborhood Bible clubs. 2020is the 11 year anniversary of this ministry!

We will go where the children live and play -- to city blocks, housing developments and community centers -- to be salt and light and ministers of the Gospel.
