“For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” Ephesians 2:10 (NLT)
Look around you. The world we live in is broken. It’s messed up. Something is not right. And, no, we are not talking about your curfew or your homework or your failed attempts to get your parents to buy you that thing you really want.
We’re talking about a world in need. There are people without food and clean water. There are people who need a helping hand. There are people who are alone, abandoned and without hope. There are people in need of God’s love.
If you slow down long enough to look, you will see that there are serious needs all around you. Deep down, you know someone needs to do something. But do you know that someone
could be you?
You were created to play a part in God’s mission of putting the world back together. You were created to make your life count. You were created to do something great.
This February as we travel to Ridgecrest, North Carolina, we want to break away from the routines of our everyday lives and explore what it looks like to make a difference in the world around us. Will you join us and allow God to move you to just do something?

Band - 88mph: Featuring Justin Kintzel as well as an array of awe-inspiring musical artists from inside Thomas Road Baptist Church whose desire is to worship Christ.
Special guest on Saturday night - Bellarive: In the summer of 2009, the Lord gifted a unified vision to the hearts of six friends from Orlando Florida. That vision quickly developed into the atmospheric worship band now known as Bellarive. Their heart is to craft artistic worship music for the creation to sing straight to the Father above. Bellarive believes that God is calling them to lead these songs not just inside the four walls of a church, but to whoever will lend an ear.
The cost of the trip covers all the student’s lodging, meals, hoodie and activity for an amazing weekend February 22-24, 2013.
