Middle School Mission Trip

Middle School Mission Trip June 20-26

Why here?

Keep Austin Weird. The City of Austin’s motto is lived out through its artistic culture and love of food trucks. But with any rapidly growing big city, there are also underserved neighborhoods. Through our local partnerships, students will learn how the church is responding to these needs in very real ways. Your team will serve in a variety of local ministries, ranging from a food pantry to a rescue mission. Students will also get the opportunity to explore Austin during our Mission Race and they’ll hike local outdoor adventure spots.

Why so close to home?

We understand that the location is not too far away. Given the current circumstances and the freedom to plan a trip, Austin seems to be a great match. Our heart at the Oakwood Student Ministry is to discover new ministry opportunities that might arise from this trip.

Ministry Outreach

Through our various partnerships, students will gain insight into what ministry in an urban environment really looks like. Opportunities include: soup kitchen, working at a neighborhood outreach center, and more.

Adventure Opportunities

Students will have the opportunity to explore downtown Austin during the Mission Race, explore local parks and conservatories, and go hiking.
