What is Mission Jax?
June 8th-13th, 2015
“A City Not Forsaken” -Isaiah 62:12
Mission Jax is where middle and high school students spend a week (Monday-Saturday) on mission to meet needs of people and organizations within the community. Each day, teams of students and leaders provide the resources necessary to complete projects in Jacksonville and the surrounding communities,
Over the years the infrastructure behind serving the city has been modeled after Acts 1:8. At the beginning of the week, the focus is on the things on or closest to church campuses in Fruit Cove, FL. Work on church grounds, widows and the elderly within the community become the focus of the first few days. After this we extend out to the city of Jacksonville. Over the years we have developed relationships with Trinity Rescue, Sulzbacher Center, Duval Police, Murray Hill Theater, Ronald McDonald House, Quigley House, Home Again St. Johns, and many more. This rewarding service combined with the impactful worship and organic teaching (combination of youth pastors) in the evenings each day has proven to have a lasting impact on our students and their Christian worldview. The potential impact of Christ on this city is limitless.
