The most diverse region in the Midwest, Chicago boasts over 200 ethnic and language groups. From the famous deep-dish pizza to Ukrainian borsch to dim sum in Chinatown, it's all authentic. However, Chicago also remains one of the most segregated cities in the US. Racial tensions run high, and the 165,000 homeless have overwhelmed the city's resources. AIDS, prostitution, gang violence, and drug abuse feed a perpetual cycle of decay that haunts the city.
There will be 4 ministry teams on this trip:
Homeless Ministry Team: This team will volunteer at a local shelter that provides need-based evangelism, giving out everything from groceries to clothing. Through helping with laundry, serving meals, making beds and cleaning rooms, and other chores around the property, we will share God's love to everyone who comes through the door.
Work Projects Team: This team will have an opportunity for restoration projects within the city, working alongside community works programs. This could look like park clean up, maintenance at retirement homes, serving the overworked pastors etc.
Relational Evangelism Team: This team will be doing things like buying peoples Coffee and paying for their laundry, as well as prayer stations.
Kids Club Team: Mini Go Round Rock kids clubs in Humbolt park and Wicker Park, to help kids see the life changing reality of Jesus Christ.
This trip is now closed, but you can continue to support the team financially and through prayer
