Youth Mission and Service

Students are invited to serve at a community and global level in a variety of ways. Our goal when attending these trips is never to “fix” or “save” individuals. We value coming alongside ongoing ministry with local leaders to learn how they serve.

Each summer, we offer week-long immersion service trips in the following ways:

  • 6-8th Grade: Trips are local or within the U.S. We strive to introduce students to churches who have ongoing missions with their communities so we can learn how other worship bodies care for their neighbors.
  • 9-12th Grade: Trips rotate between serving communities with the U.S. and joining our mission partners in Orange Walk, Belize. First Presbyterian Church of Grand Haven began a relationship with Koinonia Ministry in 2019. In addition to providing hands-on service with trips, we also provide funds for their ongoing children and youth programs.
