The Gathering – 2017 Youth Missions Trip

The Gathering – 2017 Youth Missions Trip

OFFICIAL INFORMATION PACKET SUPPLIED BY THE NAB

Our youth group is heading to California for a Missions trip / Youth Conference called “The Gathering”.  Our goal is to see God doing work in us and through us.  We will be partnering with local churches in outreach projects during the day, and at night we will be part of a youth conference.  “The Gathering” is a Triennial youth event that is sponsored by the North American Baptists.  Students will gather from across Canada and the United States.  We hope that you can be a part of “The Gathering”.

The conference will be taking place at Chapman University, California.  We will also be staying there for the duration of our trip.

We are leaving Calgary at 7:30 on Friday, July 14 and returning at 11:35 on Friday, July 21.

IMPORTANT QUESTIONS:

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?  The total price, (not including Saturday’s fun activities) will be $1200 CAD.  All students attending need to put a $150 deposit down to secure their. spot.

WHEN DO I NEED TO REGISTER BY?  The early bird price for the conference is OCT 31.  So Please register by Oct 30 at the latest.  We will need the downpayment at the time of your registration.

WILL WE BE DOING FUNDRAISING?  Yes, as much fundraising as we can.  All students attending the trip need to play an active role in our fundraising efforts. We hope to fundraise enough money that all students who want to come can, and that finances will not stop a student from being a part of this experience.

WHO CAN COME?  Students in Grades 7-12 for the 2016-2017 school year are eligible.  We ask that all participants be willing to live by our churches membership covenant and that they would be a part of a PYRO Discipleship Group.
