Host a SERVE Trip

    “SERVE started a momentum in our congregation that is like a mini revival. I’ll have to determine how to make the most of it throughout the rest of the year.”

    –Pastor from a Host Church

Host a SERVE Mission Trip in 2017 or 2018

Transform the world one community at a time.

Each Youth Unlimited SERVE teen mission experience is run by a local Host Team, made up of committed volunteers from one or more churches/organizations. These dedicated volunteers organize a SERVE mission trip with full support from Youth Unlimited. Together, Youth Unlimited and the local Host Team strive to organize a SERVE that will have long-term impact on the community, organizations and people that will be served. SERVE is greatly enhanced by coming along side non-profit and faith-based organizations and individuals who are already serving year-round in their communities.

A mission experience is at its best when relationships are formed between those who are serving and those who are being served, recognizing that those who are being served have as much, if not more, to give.

By hosting a SERVE youth mission experience in your community, you can help transform the lives of people in your community, your congregation and the lives of students who come to serve.

SERVE is designed so that youth workers can concentrate on building relationships with students and leave the details of the SERVE experience to Youth Unlimited and the local Host Teams.

Throughout your hosting experience, Youth Unlimited will provide you with:

  • Training
  • Prayer support
  • Administrative details
  • Marketing/promotion
  • Spiritual Life materials
  • Financial resources
  • And more
