Mexico City

Why a service trip?
A service trip is an opportunity for our local church to bring glory to God by strategically engaging with ministries that are bringing God’s love and justice to their local communities. It is a chance to invest resources in ministries that would benefit from an injection of energy and capacity. These trips are also a chance for participants to understand how God is working in our world from a different perspective than they might see in their day-to-day. 

The team will work with Urban Mosaic, a CCFC partner and a faith-based community development organization. Mosaic's vision is to holistically transform urban communities who through Mosaic are being renewed with hope, equipped to promote community transformation, and witnessing about the good news of God's Shalom. 
 


Why Urban Mosaic?
Urban Mosaic and CCFC are like-minded in our vision to address both spiritual and material poverty. We see great potential for synergy between the two bodies, and by sending our third CCFC team to Mexico City this summer, we are deepening our commitment to support the Urban Mosaic staff, bless the youth in San Sebastian, and complement our support of Albert and Emily Chen's work as CCFC missionaries. We also expect to return with renewed fervor to deepen our impact and ministry here in Central Square and surrounding neighborhoods.

What will you actually be doing for the week?
Team members will spend the week, in partnership with Urban Mosaic staff, running a youth camp for 10-16 year olds. The camp will provide a spark for Mosaic staff to pursue relationships with youth throughout the upcoming academic year. Leading up to the camp, the team will design courses for the youth that utilize the skills of the CCFC members attending. This could range from sports, arts, public speaking, dance, and more! In addition to the youth camp, the team will spend time learning from the Executive Director of Urban Mosaic, Jean-Luc Krieg, and hearing more about Mosaic's in-depth model of transformation and God’s heart for urban poor communities.
