Students will have an opportunity to participate in a variety of ministry opportunities, including home construction, food distribution and working with the homeless, and possible Vacation Bible School & children's ministry work. Down time activities will also be set up throughout the week and students will have a chance to explore and enjoy Roanoke. $100 dollars is due with application to ensure spot on the mission trip – Sign-ups will be available until May 7.

Reach-In Roanoke does have its mission opportunities open to middle school students as well – students that have completed 7th grade this year are invited to participate in this mission trip. We simply ask parents to be practically and prayerfully considerate of whether or not your student is ready to participate in a week-long mission experience.
ATTENTION PARENTS, OLDER SIBLINGS, COLLEGE FRIENDS, OR HELPFUL NEIGHBORS! Our youth need adult assistance during this year's mission trip. We are looking for adults that can help with part or all of the week of July 15-21. If you think you may be available, please see Trish for more information!
