Smokey Mountain Summer Mission, here we come!

Stephanie and Jen (on left) and Harrison (below) are each taking a big leap of faith this summer…  And we are going to be there to watch them take it!

We are really excited about joining 38 students from across the country (including these three from UNCG) in Gatlinburg, TN this summer for seven weeks for the Smokey Mountain Summer Mission (SMSM).   SMSM is a close-knit mission, where we intentionally pursue authentic community with one another while equipping students to share the gospel as a way of life.  We will be joining several other staff families to help disciple, train, equip and do ministry together with the students.

This mission centers around the more than 1,000 international students from all over the world who come to Gatlinburg to work each summer. Students will have a local restaurant, church or amusement park job where they work alongside internationals.  In addition to relational evangelism at work, our outreach involves building friendships, a weekly party, and just having fun, as we share the gospel.  This is a tremendous opportunity to reach the nations for Christ.

We look forward to sharing what the Lord will do at and through the Smokey Mountain Summer Mission.  Thank you for your faithful prayers and generous giving!
