DATES OF TRIP: March 15-17, 2018.

 

REGISTRATION DATES: February 11 - March 4, 2018.

 

REQUIREMENTS: Love Jesus and have a heart to serve others. 

WHAT WE’RE DOING: There are currently over 21,000 homeless in Atlanta alone and only 3000 beds that are available and shelters are closing down daily due to lack of funds. Every day we will go under the bridges of Atlanta and into The Bluff (Atlanta’s largest crack cocaine district) to minister to the homeless and the lost. We’ll hand out lunches and pray with each person we touch and then we give them a HUG. Whether they’re living under a bridge or an abandoned home or crack apartment, the need is the same: Jesus. We will return back to the Garden each evening where we will have opportunities to minister to the 105 women and children residing at 7 bridges.

COST: Registration- $0. We do encourage you to bring enough cash for your own snacks/dinners. Also, since we are carpooling we ask that you provide your driver with $15-20
