Backyard Bible clubs, relational ministry, service projects

Servant Life partners with local churches in St. Louis who are reaching their community with the hope of Christ by bringing the gospel directly to the community. Short-term teams will be serving in low-income neighborhoods that represent strategic ministry areas of the local church, and will be ministering to children and families in local parks and apartment complexes. Each of these locations has been vetted by our local team and is safe for groups to come and minister; the local church has a year-round presence in these areas and is welcomed with open arms. 

In partnership with the local church, we seek to impact the lives of children and their families by meeting them where they are and running Backyard Bible Clubs in their neighborhoods, where they feel most comfortable. We also strive to meet the needs of the community and love them the way that Jesus Christ loves us.

What will my team be doing? 

Short-term teams are a huge part of local church outreach, as there are many communities in St. Louis that need to see the light of the gospel. During spring break and summer, there may be multiple teams serving each week in order to impact multiple communities with the good news of Christ. Teams are involved in Backyard Bible Clubs as well as other service projects throughout the course of the week. Other service projects could include sports camps, relational ministry, or community service projects. A few times during the week, teams are part of a worship service together before heading into the communities again the next morning.
