HIS CALLING > OUR COMFORT
We are partnering with Clarkston International Baptist Church just outside of Atlanta, Georgia as they offer HELP with Christlike compassion and the HOPE of the Gospel for the international community so they may turn to Christ as Lord and Savior and make the church their home to GATHER, GROW, and GO on mission.
PEOPLE GROUP/CITY PROFILE
In years past, an estimated 3,000 new refugees arrive in Georgia annually with most calling the Clarkston area (just outside of Atlanta) their first US home. Within Clarkston, over 90 unreached People Groups reside, and over 45 language dialects are spoken at the local schools.
- This mission project will involve lots of walking and full days of ministry activities. Therefore, participants should be in reasonably good physical condition.
- Housing will be at a local church. Mattresses will be provided but trip participants are encouraged to bring bedding.
The focus of this trip is to reach the lost for Christ. This is done by canvassing the community for potential candidates for a three-day Vacation Bible School. Activities include transporting the children to and from VBS, and conducting a typical VBS with Bible stories, crafts, recreation, and refreshments.

I have some questions...
Here's my mission story
As a college student nearing graduation in 2009, I knew I wanted to make a difference but didn’t know what my next step should be. Someone both told me and showed me through a short term mission trip how so many people had never heard the gospel of Jesus. I read Romans 15:20-21 and was compelled to spend two years in Bangladesh to love, share the gospel with, and seek to plant a church in a land that consisted of more than 150 million Muslims. God used two simple young men, one from southeastern Kentucky and the other from southeastern Bangladesh to light a spark resulting in a movement of churches planting churches that continues to multiply to this day.
