Short-Term Missions Trip to New York City

In July 2012, four of Calvary’s teens, Lisa Dube, Tyler Bolhuis, Emily Jackson, and Alex Grogg, participated in a Short-Term Missions Trip to New York City, New York. They were part of the team ministering with Vision for Youth‘s New Hope Missions trips, led by our Missionary, Don Jackson.

The team worked with City View Baptist Church, a church plant in Astoria, Queens. As Don wrote in his July 2012 ministry update, “We assisted Pastor Rob Rodriquez and his team by organically spreading God’s love through the simple means of passing hundreds of water bottles with Connect cards (information about the church), running Kids’ Community Bible Clubs in two separate parks, clearning the parks, playing with children in the parks and conducting surveys to glean what people are looking for in a church and how City View can best reach its community.”
