Summer Serving Opportunities (local and abroad)
- Hosting a Spanish Student (Young Life Madrid) - High School Ministry partners with our missionaries David, Drew, Sharalyn, & Emily in Madrid to help host high school students for the month of July each summer. These students come to Knoxville for a month with Young Life, spend 3 weeks with families in Knoxville and a week at Sharptop Cove, hearing the Gospel like never before. It is like bringing the mission field to you.
- Summer Abroad Mission Trips - Many students go on short-term mission trips set up by Cedar Springs. Multi-generational short-term mission opportunities are available to China, Ethiopia, and Haiti. We will keep you posted as opportunities become available.
