Agora Ministries has served and empowered both individuals and whole neighborhoods in inner-city San Antonio. Their ministry center is a gathering place for the local community and a space for the team to model loving, Christ-centered relationships.
In partnering with Agora and several local churches, we will be meeting the spiritual and physical needs of children and adults through ministering to local families, helping host outreach events, and doing door-to-door evangelism in one of the poorest zip codes in Texas.
By sacrificing part of our Spring Break, we can enable Agora to reach more people for the Kingdom of God. This will be a great option for those who wish to serve on a mission team and/or have limited availability over spring break.

The Perkins Foundation
This trip provides the opportunity to learn about a deeply Christian vision for justice and reconciliation, which is especially important given that there is a lot of conversation about justice and diversity on the modern day college campus. There will be work projects designed to interact with local residents and to develop personal connections to the people the volunteers are serving. Time will be spent each evening debriefing experiences from the day, revealing the very practical realities of being in a low-income, urban, and predominantly black community.

We are continuing our ongoing work with a church that is seeking to develop small groups based on the same model that Chi Alpha uses. A typical day consists of a service project in the morning, two hours of soccer in the afternoon, and LTC style classes in the evening. Team members must have completed Chi Alpha’s small group leader training class (LTC) or be recommended by their small group leader. Vision and passion for transgenerational discipleship is essential.
