The ministry in Chicago is an experiential service-learning program that promotes significant transformation through Christ. Mission Discovery teams spend a week in Woodlawn on Chicago's south side- a beautiful and resilient community that faces many challenges. While there, Mission Discovery volunteers will come face to face with their assumptions about poverty, racism, and more by engaging in thought-provoking conversations.
We introduce volunteers to community members to whom they can listen and from whom they learn. We also provide teams the opportunity to serve alongside our community partners in their organizations, schools, and ministries. Mission Discovery groups that come to Chicago will take a new perspective home. Our prayer is that the new perspective gives life to new ministry opportunities in each team’s hometown.
We give each group time to explore a local African American history museum, explore the downtown part of Chicago, and travel on the elevated El train of Chicago.
