THIS SUMMER GATEWAY YOUTH ARE HEADED TO EASTERN UNIVERSITY IN PHILADEPHIA, PA FOR FUGE CAMP!!!
Who: 6th - 12th Grade Completed by June
Cost: $400/student (multi-child discount of -$25/student)
At MFuge, you will jump into ministry with local communities and serve people in need. Our highly trained FUGE staffers will take care of the details, lead Bible study and facilitate the planning for each day.
At MFuge, Students are divided into groups for Bible study and ministry based on the type of work they request. Off-site ministry is facilitated within Bible study groups by a member of our trained FUGE camp staff, who also leads the Bible study. Ministry sites vary by location, but groups are trained and equipped for ministry through activities such as painting and yard work, facilitating activities with kids, or working in a homeless shelter. Adult leaders from your church accompany Bible study groups to the ministry site. Lunch is provided at ministry site.
During the day your students will be challenged and stretched as individuals; in the evenings, you’ll have an opportunity to build group unity over dinner, worship, fellowship and church group devotions.
MFuge is designed to give students a mission experience that opens their eyes to similar opportunities they may have to serve in their own communities, learning to live everyday life on mission!
This ministry track involves working with children in a variety of settings including: Vacation Bible Schools, Backyard Bible Clubs, Day Camps, and other site-specific work with children. Groups may work at churches, community centers, apartment complexes, children’s homes, etc. The purpose of this track is to provide students with the opportunity to teach and lead children through Bible stories, games, crafts and music.
Games and Recreation Ministry
This ministry track is designed to help students use their athletic ability and willing hearts to share the gospel through sportsmanship and Christ-like attitudes. These tracks are located in children’s centers or homes, apartment complexes, community centers and boys and girls clubs. Games and Recreation tracks will not always have the opportunity to lead Bible stories or share the Gospel directly but will focus more on relational evangelism through intentional conversations. This track ministers to people of all ages, from Pre-K to high school and even adults.
This track is designed to minister specifically to the homeless population. Students will spend each day visiting with the homeless in shelters, building relationships, serving meals, leading games with children, etc.
Painting, Construction, and Yard Work Ministry
Students in this track will spend their time doing yard work, repairing, cleaning, painting, and light construction work. These tracks work with various organizations such as Habitat for Humanity and local housing authorities to meet the physical needs of churches, schools, families and individuals. Students in this track will be encouraged to share the love of Christ with people they are working for and with people they encounter through their work.
This ministry track provides students a variety of ministry opportunities for meeting the phys- ical, emotional, mental, and spiritual needs of people. Students in this track may minister in: mentally/physically handicapped centers, nursing homes, homeless shelters, soup kitchens, food banks, clothing closets, furniture distribution centers, refugee ministries, prison ministries, Baptist Centers, Salvation Army Sites, and other community organizations with similar purpos- es.
