InterVarsity will be leading a missions trip in Detroit and the town of Hillsdale over Spring Break.
“The Spring Break Missions Trip is a great way to spend spring break because it’s a time of living out the Christian faith alongside your fellow brothers and sisters in Christ,” event coordinator and advertiser Andy Walker said.” Working on the same projects, sharing meals, devotions, and each other’s stories connect you with those in your group in a unique and deeply Christ-centered way that builds lasting relationships.”
After six years, InterVarsity continues to bring students into the community of Hillsdale to help spread the word of God. The group serves the community regardless of Christian denomination.
The central goal of the missions trip is to be the hands, feet, and heart of Jesus to a community that so desperately longs for and needs it, according to junior Caroline Walker who will be attending the trip.
“I’m not just talking about the city of Hillsdale, but also us, the students,” she said. “The missions trip is structured to encourage growth toward understanding and falling in love with the heart of Jesus and to demonstrate the love and beauty discovered there to our fellow students and to the world around us.”
In addition to being a time of gathering with fellow believers, students who participate can earn HTA hours towards volunteer requirements.
Students begin serving the night of March 6 and are finished on the morning of March 12.
