Ministry: Our primary ministry during this trip will be partnering with Mercy Hill Chapel (MHC), an SBC church plant led by Brad McOwen. MHC is based in Irvington, Indiana, a suburb of Indianapolis. Their official launch date is Sunday, April 2, 2023. Brad and his wife, Jenn, are from California and followed God’s call to Indiana in 2017. Since then they have served the Lord in a few different churches/settings, and are now set to launch Mercy Hill Chapel. Cleve and Pastor Brad are discussing several opportunities for service to take place in Indianapolis ranging from painting, construction, yardwork, prayer walk/canvassing, and more.
**If you are interested in learning more about the McOwens and/or Mercy Hill Chapel, speak to Cleve for their prospectus**
Worship: Worship and small group devotions are built into our daily schedules. Times of worship will be intimate in nature, with one or two individuals leading worship followed by a message from Scripture.
Lodging: Our group will lodge at City View Church in Avon, Indiana. City View is currently pastored in an interim role by Scooter Kellum, former Youth Ministry Strategist for the Alabama Baptist State Board of Missions. Eastmont students and chaperones will sleep on air mattresses/sleeping bags. We will have a shower trailer provided on site as well.
Meals: Most meals will be provided at City View Church. There will be times when we will dine offsite at local restaurants, etc. A full, detailed schedule will be provided in the weeks leading up to the trip.
