Youth Mission to Africa

Mathew 25:31

The King will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.'

Every year the MOC sponsors a group of youth to work on a community service project, teach English, and experience Christianity the African way! Previous missions included:

July 2012 and 2013 - Gabon

Approximately fifteen team members from our congregation will be traveling to Libreville, Gabon and partnering with Envision Culture. While in Libreville, our team will work with medical, children's, and construction ministries. The two medical clinics are operated by Gabonese Christian nurses and doctors, who share the Gospel while caring for people's basic healthcare needs. Hope House, a home for abandoned children founded by an Alliance pastor and his wife, cares for the physical, emotional and educational needs of more than 30 children. Our team will also have the opportunity to travel approximately three hours into the jungle to a village called Ebel Abanga, were we will work alongside the locals in a construction project, teaching E.S.L and running a daytime program for children.

July 2011 - Cameroon

The youth and young adults went under the supervision of Daniel Grout and Ginger Strickland Cameroon in West Africa to aid in providing public sanitation and Christian education to the village of Douala. 

July 2010-Burkina Faso

The youth and young adults went under the supervision of Ginger Strickland to Burkina Faso in West Africa to volunteer with Heal the World, and NGO founded by ACP member John Roberts. While there, they gave English classes to help youth hoping to get their language skills up to par, in order to gain entrance in to university Heal the World was set to finish building in 2013. The youth and young adults also helped a local church to build classrooms for a local school. Click here to read more about experiences from the youth themselves!

Major Fundraiser

The MOC donates up to 500 euros per participant. The rest of the fundraising is done as a team. AFRICA NIGHT is one of our major team efforts. The entertainment filled night introduces guests to food, music and dance from the four corners of the continent to celebrate its diversity and introduce the team to the public. This event usually takes place in March.

Africa Night — Friday 24 May 2013 18h30 to 22h00 in the ACP Theater

Come support ACP's Youth Mission to Africa

Africa Night — Friday 24 May 18h30 to 22h00 in the ACP Theater ACP is a mission church and, for the past three years, a group of students have committed time each summer to travel to Africa to serve those less fortunate. During 7-20 July, approximately fifteen team members from our congregation will be traveling to Libreville, Gabon and partnering with Envision Culture during our stay in Africa. If you would like more information about this host organization and the country of Gabon, please visit their website.

While in Libreville, our team will work with medical, children’s, and construction ministries. The two medical clinics are operated by Gabonese Christian nurses and doctors, who share the Gospel while caring for people’s basic healthcare needs. Hope House, a home for abandoned children founded by an Alliance pastor and his wife, cares for the physical, emotional, and educational needs of more than 30 children. Our team will also have the opportunity to travel approximately three hours into the jungle to a village called Ebel Abanga, were we will work alongside the locals in a construction project, teaching E.S.L., and running a daytime program for children.

In order to accomplish our goals each participant must raise 1,800 euros. This total includes the cost of travel and transportation, meals and lodging, a grant giving project, and the project costs with Envision. It is our goal to ensure that medical, physical, spiritual, and financial help is provided in partnership with local Gabonese organizations.

One of our biggest and most fun fundraising initiatives is AFRICA NIGHT which will take place this year on Friday 24 May from 18h30 to 22h30 in the Theater. It is a night to experience African food, dance, and music from the four corners of the continent and meet the wonderful youth going on the trip.
