Boston is a historic city that is home to a rich and diverse collection of people. There are more than 60 colleges and universities that serve over 150,000 college students per year. Boston has 23 different neighborhoods, each with its own sense of identity and set of values. In addition, the city has a global appeal, which has led to about 29% of the population registering as foreign-born or international.
The Send Relief ministry center is located in downtown Boston at the intersection of many different human experiences. It shares a street with a university and law school and is closed in on either side by two hotels. Only 200 yards away is the famed Boston Common, which is often frequented by a large number of tourists, employees from surrounding businesses, locals from adjacent affluent Beacon Hill and Back Bay neighborhoods, and a large population of people experiencing homelessness. The ministry center sits at a crossroads and is strategically positioned to be a catalyst for ministries of mercy and compassion throughout the rest of the city.
This Boston Mission Trip functions as an opportunity to observe the initiatives and partnership activities that are happening through the ministry center, to participate in some relational ministry, and to be equipped with principles that could assist the visiting team in beginning compassion ministry upon their return back home.
What will you do:
Teams will be participating in a variety of opportunities that can include homeless outreach, community development, canvassing, prayer walking, trafficking outreach, and ministry to internationals.
About a third of the trip will also include aspects of training and equipping so that volunteers can learn how to serve the under-resourced communities in their cities better.
