What to Expect
This team will be partnering with Young Life, a global Christian organization that builds relationships with youth in the communities to introduce and then help them grow in Christ. We will conduct sports clinics, game nights, English language learning camps, and more to facilitate connecting Russian youth to Young Life and local churches...and more importantly, to Jesus. We want to love and serve them as we build friendships with them so that they can see the love and freedom that comes with knowing Jesus.
This trip will consist of a full week in St.Petersburg working with Young Life, a tourist day to explore the city and see the sights, and traveling days on each end.
