What do we do?
We offer two types of "Day Missions":
A two hour mission experience, in which you can join a team of 10 missionaries to cook and share a meal with the guests at a community shelter.
A one day mission, in which you can join a team of around 15 missionaries in a day of service in the city.
How do we do it?
In a spirit of service, sustained with prayer and and nourished by friendship we serve in different charitable institutions in Chicago that allow us to share in their mission.
As true missionaries we find God's will in the circumstances and adapt to what the day presents us, seeking to love God in every person we encounter.
