Mountain View students have amazing opportunities to serve the Lord during the summer months through mission trips. Each of these trips is designed to challenge our students and show them how they can be used by the Lord to serve his kingdom. During Summer of 2017, our devoted young people took The Word, their physical and mental skills, and unlimited energy to serve those in need in Greece, Guatemala, and closer to home, in Pittsburgh, PA.
PITTSBURGH PROJECT (http://pittsburghproject.org/)
For over 30 years, the Pittsburgh Project has served the needs of the elderly and less-fortunate in Pittsburgh through home repair and relational ministry. July, 2017 marked MVCC students' sixth trip to the Pittsburgh Project.
Guatemala is home to beautiful volcanoes and lush forests. It's also a very poor country, sadly known for poverty, street kids, and human trafficking. MVCC students teamed up with Praying Pelican Missions, partnering with a local Guatemalan church with hopes of establishing a long-term relationship there.
Athens is a gateway city for thousands of refugees from the Middle East, primarily Syria. MVCC students took advantage of an unprecedented opportunity to share the love of Christ with the nations in one of the world's oldest and greatest cities. Our team worked alongside Global Serve Initiatives, engaging youth and young adults in conversation and serving in a variety of creative and practical ways. We will also have an opportunity to visit several historical biblical sites. Greece 2017 Application
