Cost: $300 per person (minus monies raised through pecan sales and other fundraising efforts of the Student Ministry)
Travel: Capital Trailways, Charter Bus
Ministry: Our students will partner with Street Reach, St. Louis, an organization originally based in Memphis, Tennessee. Street Reach provides a structured approach to missions. Street Reach utilizes mission teams to reclaim communities for Christ by providing Bible Day Camps for children in the mornings along with serving the communities in the afternoons by meeting specific physical and spiritual needs. During our week of ministry, Eastmont students and adults will target three adjacent, urban neighborhoods with the Gospel. These are areas where local churches have a continual presence throughout the year, so our efforts will serve to both plant gospel seeds as well as harvest spiritual fruit.

Lodging: Our group will be lodged at a local church who partners with Street Reach. The church provides bunk-style beds, but students will need their own linens/sleeping bags and pillows. The site also has showers and bathrooms on site.*
Meals: The host site will provide daily meals for our group except for Wednesday evening, Friday evening, and Saturday morning. On Wednesday evening, our group will travel offsite for an evening meal at a local restaurant. Friday afternoon/evening our group will have several hours for sightseeing, and the evening meal will again be at a local restaurant. Also, students will be responsible for meals during the travel days to and from Missouri.**
