This unique urban outreach ministry, in community with First Presbyterian Church, is based in Asheville, N.C. Our group will arrive on Sunday night for an orientation, serve Monday through Thursday (two ministry opportunities per day) and depart after breakfast on Friday morning. We will be doing all kinds of work from physical labor to visitation to playing games with kids or simply sharing a meal with the homeless. We will all be experiencing what it means to be Christ’s hands and feet in the world. In the evenings, we will reconvene for a program where we’ll explore and debrief our  daily experiences. We will close our time together with worship led by AYM.

We will spend eight nights in the Port-au-Prince region of Haiti working with one of WMPC’s international partner organizations, Haiti Outreach Ministries. The trip will include work projects, cultural engagement opportunities, visits to other outreach ministries (such as one of the local orphanages), and time to experience Haiti as a tourist. This short-term, international trip is an incredible experience for those who want to get their hands dirty serving and partnering with God’s people in Haiti. No experience or training necessary – just an open heart and a willing spirit!
