Mission Upstate and Mission Lowcountry

We are partnering with local churches through service projects and helping put on a summer camp for kids in the area. We, as a church, are supporting the local churches in their vision to make disciples by providing short term teams to help facilitate activities each week. Whether you are a family group leader, sports coordinator, or part of a worksite, you will have the chance to interact with and build relationships with people in the local community each day through the activities you take part in. A week spent away from the comfort and familiarity of home will reframe your spiritual mindset and compel you to live a life more fully devoted to Christ’s cause instead of your own.
