About Birmingham

During the day, groups will serve the community through children’s programs, housing programs, and outreach to the elderly and homeless. In the evenings there will be opportunities to visit the Vulcan, tour historic civil rights sites and spend time with new friends at a community cookout. Birmingham is a great place for teenagers to interact with, learn about, and serve a unique group of people directly affected by a history that has influenced the whole country.

We teenagers + We communities

Teenagers need to encounter Jesus outside their normal context to deepen their faith and broaden their perspectives. Plus, communities need to be valued—not as mere recipients but as partners who have stories worth sharing in.

When we bring the two together, incredible things happen.
