It began with Mission Youth...
Mission Youth is a national organization which has been making an impact throughout the world since its creation in 1986. Through the missions organized by Mission Youth, missionaries from all over the US have been enabled to set out with the task of using their individual gifts and the gifts of the faith to serve people in need. To peoples and cultures of all types, Mission Youth missionaries bring the love of God and the outreach that is considered most valuable to the people they serve. Mission Youth offers national mission trips to many states, as well as international missions to the communities of Haiti, Cancun, Nicaragua, and Puebla.
But then in 2013 ...
45 missionaries from the greater Detroit area experienced (for the first time) the power of being channels of God’s love and mercy to the people of Haiti. After the third summer there, a group of missionaries decided to bring that powerful experience of love back from the country of Haiti to the “Haitians of Detroit” who need it just as much.
And with that, Mission Youth Detroit was born.
Mission Youth Detroit continues to offer international mission trips but focuses primarily on creating those same opportunities to serve right here at home. Mission Youth Detroit is committed to making big waves of change by bringing the love and mercy of God to the people most in need in the greater Detroit area and tackling relevant projects of restoration and aid while also offering training and accompaniment for high school and college missionaries who participate in projects.
