Short Term mission trips
Rock Ministries of Philadelphia welcomes short-term mission teams to serve with us here in the inner city. The Rock’s neighborhood is among the poorest in America, with high rates of homelessness, fatherless homes, drug addiction and hopelessness. Our adjacent blocks comprise one of the most active drug areas in the country. All this means we are surrounded with nearly endless ministry opportunities!
Mission teams are invited to join us here for a day to up to a week. Teams stay with us here in our facility and serve alongside our inner city missionaries. Service opportunities include:
- street outreaches to our community
- children’s activities in the neighborhood and with Rock youth ministry
- facility renovation and maintenance
- participation in other Rock events
The standard cost of a mission trip is $15.00 per person per day, per expected length of stay. This covers the costs of food that the Rock purchases and has available when the team arrives. One-day teams typically are not charged a fee.
Virtually without exception, every missionary who has joined us here has gone home inspired, changed and motivated to serve Christ in a deeper way. Time on the inner city mission field is eye-opening, not only to the realities of life in urban America, but to the incredible ways God works among the downtrodden and underserved.
