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 Redemption City Church hub. The address is 2720 Poplar St. Philadelphia, PA 19130. Your project leader will give you instructions each morning of the Serve Tour.
Brewerytown is one of the fastest growing neighborhoods in Philadelphia and is located near the Schuylkill Rivers eastern bank. This area is in the heart of where the people of Redemption City Church live and minister. Part of this church plant's mission is to do at least one street cleanup per year, while looking for any way to bless/serve the residents of the street. They desire to show this community a glimpse of Christ's Kingdom here on earth.
Volunteers will work, pray, connect, and share with sections of this community as they clean up. They will be picking up trash on Girard Avenue from 31st St to 25th St, plus any adjacent streets that need attention.
