In partnership with churches, associations, your state convention, and SEND Relief, the Serve Tour seeks to inspire you to engage in compassion ministry through participation in ministry projects in Jacksonville. Our plan is to find ways to meet needs and bless churches, schools, local governments, and compassion ministry non-profits. We want to strategically help local revitalized churches and bless bi-vocational pastors by providing assistance.
We want to make it easy to bring people together in Jesus’ name to make a difference.
Our goal is for the Serve Tour to become a unifying opportunity for Southern Baptists to demonstrate to a watching city who we are and (more importantly) who our Savior is. As believers swarm the city, we will provide pre-trip training guides and a 30-day prayer guide to help you take your next step on mission.
What will you do?
You will begin each day of Serve Tour at the GARDEN VIEW BAPTIST CHURCH hub. The address is 3139 Armsdale Rd, Jacksonville, FL 32218. Your project leader will give you instructions each morning of Serve Tour.
Springfield is a historic area that is transitioning out of generations of crime and poverty. It is becoming, once again, a community of families and growing small businesses. You will work with Dream Church, a local church plant, to share a meal and do laundry for residents in need. More importantly, there will be a time to gather for worship, prayer, and a Gospel presentation.
In addition, you will engage the neighbors through the Mobile Grill outreach ministry. You will assist with cooking, handing out food, and engaging with local residents. This ministry will give a great opportunity to pray with others and share the gospel with those who live in the community.
