Urban Mission/Service Trips

Urban Mission

BHITC offers service group experiences for churches near and far. These service learning ministries give youth and adult opportunities to experience the Kingdom outside of their normal context, uniquely helping them grow in their love for God and for others.

These trips will be used by Jesus to give your members important insights into urban mission, cultural differences, their personal giftedness for ministry and the unique “vibe” a major city offers. BHITC staff and missionaries can facilitate added service learning through devotions, urban prayer walks and teaching times, as well.

Work project schedules typically include a mix of:

  • Neighborhood events for children and families to support ongoing urban church planting efforts
  • Relational ministry among immigrants and refugees
  • Construction and rehab projects
  • Service ministries of compassion for people in need

BHITC can help coordinate low-cost housing accommodations for groups, meals and fun-filled excursions to help round out your trip.  To discuss these ideas further, contact Sharon Schuldt, Director of Ministry Engagement at (216) 281.4673 or sharon@buildinghopeinthecity.org.
