Youth Mission Opportunity - Urban Ministry, Birmingham, AL:

The Joe Rush Center for Urban Mission offers a full-service mission camp for junior high, high school, college-aged and older persons. The goal of the Rush Center is to strengthen relationships between volunteer groups and homeowners in the community over a can of paint and a paint brush. They offer opportunities [for this summer] in house painting for low-income homeowners (primarily those who are elderly and/or disabled). The work is designed to give your group opportunities to reflect, discuss, and pray about these important matters of faith: mercy, poverty and justice. They promise that your group will have time for spiritual formation and community building. Their prayer is that you leave tired in body, but refreshed in spirit and empowered to work for change. Currently, they have openings in July and the last weekend of June. For more information, please check out their website and/or email Danny Jones.
