Underneath this skyline lies a city that many tag as "the city that care forgot". Not so with us- we care deeply for the people of this city.
We first drove into the city of New Orleans (or NOLA) in August 2002. It was quite the eye opener! Honestly, no two trips to the city are the same. The city is filled with rich history and the mighty Mississippi River! We love this city! We have built relationships in New Orleans for many years now and the mission remains the same- Love God and Love People. We have seen fruit from years of lasting relationships. Ministry opportunities are many and range from street ministry to inner-city public schools, teenage and adult rehab facilities, women shelters....and so on. We never discount new doors that open to us.
Come and find yourself in New Orleans.
TRIP DESCRIPTION: Focuses on relationship-building, working at rehab facilities, missions and women's shelters along with public school assemblies.

"Then the righteous will answer Him, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go visit you?' The King will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for Me.' Matthew 25:37-40
