The mission experience is an important part of the spiritual formation of our students and faculty and exemplifies our school's mission: to be a Christian, authentic, dynamic school equipping students to be global leaders. It also reflects the dual nature of discipleship—to commune with God and go out into the world and serve.
The deadline to register for a 2020 Mission Trip is January 23rd!
The Mission Trips available to our students in 2020 include:
Run4Water in Sneedville, TN
February 14 - 17
Sneedville is a small city with a population of about 1,400 people located in the northeastern corner of Tennessee. Sneedville has one of the lowest per-capita incomes of any city in the United States. Most people in the area earn less than $13,000 per year, and 36% of the population lives below the poverty line. However, those numbers do not really give a true understanding of life in Sneedville. The city is small and is surrounded on all sides by extremely mountainous terrain. Jobs are hard to come by in the town, so most receive government assistance. Our students will serve the community of Sneedville in a number of ways while on this trip. This could look anything like small construction projects such as fixing up a house, delivering meals, or spending time with the elderly. Every trip is unique as it is the mission of the organization to meet people where they are with their specific needs.
City Impact/San Francisco, CA
March 16 - 22 (Spring Break)
Nashville Christian School will be partnering with an organization called City Impact, which is located in the Tenderloin District of San Francisco. This area of the city is where much of the homeless population is located, and that is who we will be serving. Through food drives, education, and other outreach projects, we will be serving alongside this organization to intervene on behalf of the people in this part of the city.
City Service Missions/the Bronx in New York City
June 5 - 12
In New York, we work with City Service Missions and partners with many organizations throughout the city. Each day, we will go into the different boroughs of New York City to serve in many capacities such as packing food, preparing meals for recovery centers, spending time in after school programs, and many other opportunities. Along with the service opportunities, we will have the chance to learn more about the social justice situations that need attention in New York. From race relations to poverty, we will take time to learn about the issues at hand and how we can help.
