Volunteer Student Mission (VSM) Trips

Every summer, the OGBC Youth attend the SOAR (Sold Out And Radical) conference where they are challenged to go on mission for Jesus, not just in their own neighborhoods, but also to join missionaries around the world the following summer to assist in outreach efforts.  The youth must raise their own money to pay for the travel, food, lodging, and materials for the outreach activities; in this way, they are a true blessing (not a burden) to the missionary team they go to support. This is not a vacation for the students, but a real mission trip where they will be expected to prepare and teach lessons, lead worship, share their testimony and reach out to the people in the area where they are sent.  This is a life-changing experience that helps our students learn to rely on God as they step beyond their comfort zones to serve Him and others.  Truly, the OGBC Youth practice putting "Jesus Before Anything Else" (Jesus is BAE)!!

In 2015 and 2016, Oak Grove sent youth to Panama, Peru, and Romania, and an in-country mission to Georgia. If you ask our VSM students, they will tell you of the amazing way that God worked in and through them, and how they personally grew through the experience.  This year, we will also send students on a VSM trip to Ecuador for the summer of 2017.  Please pray for our students as they join God on mission!

As each leader and student must raise their own money for these mission trips, please let us know of any odd jobs you may need help with.  We will gladly work for donations to benefit summer mission trips! 

Please also pray as each of these students prepare to share the good news of God's salvation through Jesus Christ with people across the street and around the world!
