October 7th - October 14th, 2018

This coming October, members of our LeadX program will have the opportunity to travel to NYC and serve alongside the team at the NYC Dream Center.

Registering here is to communicate interest in the trip, this is not a final registration.

Exact dates are TBD, travel will be a Monday-Sunday.

The New York City Dream Center was founded in 2009 as an offspring from the Los Angeles Dream Center. Compelled by a vision to impact all of New York City by addressing people’s physical, material and spiritual needs in unique and practical ways, the Dream Center currently reaches communities in East Harlem and Chelsea through its need-centered ministries and church services.

While visiting one of the greatest cities in the world, we will help support a ministry that is already making a difference. Inner city outreaches, distributing clothes and food to the homeless, assisting the elderly by cleaning and organizing their homes - these are all opportunities our team may get to be a part of, along with participating in bible studies and church services.

Cost: $1250

Included in the costs: Airfare, transportation, accommodations, ministry costs, breakfast

Not included: Money for lunches and dinners ($40 minimum recommended per day), extra money for shopping and tourism

A21 | #WalkForFreedom (Oct 20)

October 20th, 2018

WALK FOR FREEDOM

Pray for Love | Children between the ages of 5-17 are victims of child labor.

Pray for Peace | 68% of human trafficking victims are trapped in forced labor.

Pray for Hope | Slavery is the fastest growing organized crime in the world.

Pray for Confidence | Victims need help not judgement or punishment.

Pray for Strength | The average age of a missing child who is exploited through sex trafficking is 15.

Yes, human trafficking is happening in your city and actually not far from your very own backyard. We are not going to be quiet.

By now it's clear that slavery will not end on it's own.

And if you are not sure what to do about that, why not start by showing up.

What will you choose to do on October 20?
Will you be a voice for those who cannot speak up for themselves?

What is this walk?

It's a very short distance you have to walk to make a loud noise.

Who can join us?

All AGES are welcome to walk. Under 14 years old we ask for someone 15 years of age or older be with the younger walkers.

We are hosting an A21 WALK "Walk For Freedom' Thanks to the leader and Founder @ChristineCaine. Come join us and even help to raise funds. Let's make some noise. N O T I N O U R C I T Y!
