We believe that one of the greatest ways to grow one’s faith is to actively engage with the world and help to bring about God’s kingdom in the world today. The youth at Asbury do that through being actively involved in mission. Throughout their daily lives, we encourage youth to be aware of where God is at work in the world, and join in that work. The youth have been active with various local mission opportunities by helping out with Habitat for Humanity, participating in the 30 Hour Famine and serving food at Glide UMC in San Francisco.
The youth also participate in mission trips. Asbury has been very involved with the Sierra Service Project (SSP) for decades, but has also participated the Center for Student Missions (CSM) and The Door – Hollywood ministries in recent years as well. You can check out various photo galleries for those trips below:
