The difference between a missions trip and work project [podcast]

LIVE Youth Ministry TalkMinistry changes during the summer. People travel, youth leaders are gone, some teens are so busy that you never see them, others are bored and doing nothing at all, etc. Some ministry ramp up during the summer, others slow down. We discuss which direction our ministry goes during the summer, why, and how we spend our time.

We start off by talking with Paul Turner about a cheap opportunity for your youth group to go to Alabama and partner with him in doing tornato disaster relief in his community. That turned into a bigger conversation about if there’s a difference between a missions trip and a work project and, if so, what’s the difference? Is it just physical labor versus pastoral care ministry?

Here’s a brief overview of our discussion:

  • Opportunity to go do missions CHEAP with Paul Turner in Alabama for tornato disaster relief
  • Do you slow down your schedule or ramp up?
  • How do your time priorities shift during the summer?
  • Is there a difference between a missions trip and a work project?
