Mission Trips

Listen. Learn. Serve. Return.

BridgeBuilders is an experiential service-learning program designed to host teams of students from around the country in the city of Chicago. We exist to cultivate Christ-like disciples capable of loving and engaging the vulnerable while embracing biblical justice.

Our 1-day to 1-week hosted trips on the south side of Chicago encourage and equip your students to consider how their faith impacts the world around them through hands-on learning activities, daily lessons, and local service projects. These activities are designed to push your students outside of their comfort zone and into a robust opportunity for personal and spiritual growth. We help students think about how the lessons and experiences in our neighborhood can be transferred to their home communities because though you won't change our community in a week, you can be changed by it. This mutual exchange of giftedness is designed to benefit your community and ours for the glory of God.

We invite you to apply today!
