GO TENNESSEE MS Students
Middle School Students, this trip is for you! The Ability Ministry in Tennessee is a home for adults with special needs. This is a fantastic opportunity to serve and have fun with this amazing community of people! You will travel to the beautiful hills of Tennessee near Knoxville, to work at Riverwood. This team will work at the Riverwood facility to do service projects and special events for the residents. Service opportunities include yard work, cleaning projects, organizing and more. The best part of the trip is sharing meals, games and fun with the residents, and getting to know them! You will quickly become friends and may be surprised at how much they encourage you as you share God’s love with one another.
For more information about this trip please email the team leader, Molly Marchese at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note, once applications are reviewed, students may be scheduled for an informal interview with a Student Pastor. All applications must be submitted 90 days before departure for international trips and 60 days before domestic trips. Applying for a GO Team does not confirm your spot on the team. Once applications have been reviewed, you will be notified of your acceptance or status on a waiting list. If a team is full you can still apply and be put on a waiting list should a spot become available. If a Campus is not able to fill their team, any open spots will open to applicants from other Campuses 120 days prior to departure for international teams and 90 days prior to departure for domestic teams. Once your application is accepted you will be asked to submit a deposit ($100 for international and $25 for domestic teams) as well as complete a travel profile in Managed Missions. Submission of your deposit and profile will confirm your spot on the team.
We will continue to monitor any restrictions to travel due to COVID protocol in the US as well as the host countries for our Teams. Because restrictions fluctuate, all locations, dates of travel and costs listed are tentative and subject to change. Thank you for your understanding and flexibility!
