Servant Life began a partnership with Street Reach Memphis in 2016, which expanded into Street Reach St. Louis in 2017. Street Reach Memphis is a non-profit ministry located in an impoverished area of North Memphis, TN. The ministry was birthed out of a local church, Brinkley Heights Baptist Church, seeking to reclaim their community with the hope of the gospel. For the children and youth living in the communities around the church and scattered around Memphis, drugs, gangs, crime, and violence have become a way of life. Many families have been impacted by some type of abuse and the results can be seen everywhere.
Street Reach St. Louis is an effort to replicate the impact and success of the ministry in Memphis to a new city that desperately needs the hope of Christ. Street Reach tries to impact children's lives by meeting them where they are and running Backyard Bible Clubs in their neighborhoods, where they feel most comfortable. Street Reach strives to meet the needs of the community and love children and families the way that Jesus Chrst loves us.
What will my team be doing? Short-term teams are a huge part of the ministry of Street Reach, as there many communities across the city that need to see the light of the gospel. During spring break and summer, multiple teams are serving each week in order to impact multiple communities with the good news of Christ. Teams are involved in Backyard Bible Clubs as well as other service projects throughout the course of the week. Other service projects could include sports camps, relational ministry, or community service projects. A few times during the week, teams are part of a worship service together before heading into the communities again the next morning.

What does my cost include?

One meal is not included, as your team is given "off" Wednesday night to do a fun meal or a nicer meal on your own.
