World Changers Do Construction On Homes In Chattanooga

Thursday, July 13, 2017

More than 10,000 student and adult volunteers made a decision to pay $280 out of their own pockets in order to help improve living conditions of people across the United States and Canada. As most teenagers spend their summer break soaking in rays at the beach or lounging around the house, some 240 junior high, high school, and college-age students will be hard at work on a one week-long community service project in Chattanooga, July 17-July 22.

During the week, the students will be working on a variety of assignments that range from painting a house, putting on siding, distributing community gardens, distributing food to the homeless, constructing wheelchair ramps and various other projects to serve Chattanooga.

The students and adults who participate in World Changers and P2 Missions have a desire to serve and grow in their ability to meet the needs of communities. World Changers and P2 Missions participants learn what serving others really means throughout the week. Working in this city is a way to demonstrate that teens can get out of their comfort zone, work hard, and help others.

Students traveling with their churches and youth groups pay on average $280 for check in as well as all their travel to take part in this week where they work on a variety of projects throughout communities in Chattanooga.

This week, students will be working with a variety of churches throughout Chattanooga and staying at Brainerd Baptist Church.

This summer, more than 10,000 student and adult volunteers are registered to participate in over 70 World Changers and P2 Missions projects across the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico. Sponsored by LifeWay Christian Resources in Nashville, Tennessee, World Changers and P2 Missions is serving not only this week in Chattanooga but also in more than 50 cities in the US and Puerto Rico.
