In 2022, more than 170 students and adults built 12 houses for the poorest of the poor in Tijuana. These students serve others who are less fortunate and come back transformed. At end of the trip, students return home with greater understandings of life in a developing country, the meaning of Christian service and the satisfaction that their efforts made a positive impact on the lives of others. These new perspectives are priceless and the memories last a lifetime!
Email Rev Scott Kail, Pastor of Student Ministries, for more info or call (510) 547-5700, ext. 110. Please note that your family does not need to be a member of Piedmont Community Church in order for your student to participate.
Embarking on a mission of this scale requires that support teams start addressing all aspects of planning months in advance. Fundraising, gathering of supplies, recruitment of participants and leaders, transportation logistics, group preparation and safety training, correspondence with the facilitating ministry organization, and administrative/financial details are just a few areas of expertise that require the efforts and support of many volunteers from the church.
