Inner City Impact (ICI)
June 30-July 5, Chicago, IL
ICI is an organization in downtown Chicago whose mission is to present Christ to primarily unchurched inner city children and youth, discipling and integrating them into a local church. During this week in the summer, high school students from The Orchard will share the love of Christ in a mission field close to home by teaching, leading activities, and caring for children. It’s an incredible cross-cultural service opportunity. Several team training sessions prior to the club week prepare our students to serve both spiritually and physically. Turn in a completed application to your Student Ministries Pastor by April 1.
