Many times, the children in Mt. Olive Ministries are the recipients of service. However, this year, we will be working alongside children and adults in the community to help beautify properties of elderly people living in the community.
    Skill level: All levels! We will be cleaning, landscaping (including the installation of sprinkler systems), and painting. (If you have skill in plumbing, carpentry, or electrical areas, these will also be employed!)
  2. Rebuilding a carport for Mt. Olive Ministries. Teen & adult volunteers. We’ll need a person with carpentry experience who can direct this effort.
  3. Workshops for the children to introduce skills. Career workshops (carpentry, gardening, landscaping, graphic design, computer programming, nursing, etc.) as well as creative workshops (sculpting, watercolors, dance, etc.), academic workshops (computer skills, research skills, tutoring, etc.) and homemaking workshops (cooking, baking, ironing, sewing, organizing, money management).

Bruce and Pam are Venture "homegrown" missionaries who have faithfully served God for many years. The work involves landscaping, small construction for the prayer stations and getting an irrigation system in place.

There is no experience necessary to help build this sanctuary.

Short-Term Mission Trip: Langano, Ethiopia
Mar
24
to Apr 1

Short-Term Mission Trip: Langano, Ethiopia

We are taking fifty 9th graders from Hope School in Heeraraa to a sports camp in Camp Langano for a week. Camping is a critical element of the overall Sports Friends (organization that runs the camp) strategy and a natural extension of the existing community-based ministry programs. Deep relationships are formed, the good news of God's love is shared, and campers are impacted for eternity. As these young people enjoy sports, games, crafts, music, good food, warm beds, and lots of love, they encounter God in powerful ways. For many campers, they say that camp is the best week of their lives.

As you humbly sacrifice to participate in God's redemptive work, we believe it will be one of the best weeks of your life as well. Anyone who loves working with teens, including teachers, coaches, soccer or volleyball players, college age and up are welcome to participate in this 5 day sports camp with the students. As you help with skits, take pictures, or provide sports instruction, your primary role is simply to lavish God's love upon these young people. In addition, two Venture-supported missionary families work at Camp Langano and this trip is also geared towards visiting and supporting them along with working with the children who attend. 

About the Trip

Who should serve:
Anyone who loves working with children: teachers, coaches, soccer, or volleyball players ages 18 or older.

Looking for an opportunity to serve alongside your whole family (kids included!)? Join us for a Family Serve Day as we assemble transition kits for children going into foster care and at-risk youth. It'll be a wonderful opportunity to instill the value of serving and being the hands and feet of the church in your family while having fun at the same time.
