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 Philadelphia, PA. Our plan is to find ways to meet needs and bless churches, schools, local governments, and compassion ministry non-profits. In addition, we want to strategically help revitalized local 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 missions.
What will you do?
You will begin each day of Serve Tour at the Ezekiel Baptist Church hub. The address is 5701 Grays Ave Philadelphia, PA 19143. Your project leader will give you instructions each morning of the Serve Tour.
Hardy Williams School, located in SW Philly, is separated into elementary and high school. It has a rich history in turning around under preforming schools in our city and making its mission to serve students and families first. Ezekiel Baptist hopes to create a time for collaboration between the schools and use the opportunity to build relationships and serve the families in this community. Volunteers will help to refresh and repaint the surrounding fence and help supply recesses.
Volunteers will work on selected sections of the iron fence that surrounds the school by scraping, prepping and then putting fresh paint on it.
