World Outreach Missions - Urban Plunge


Urban Plunge invites students to participate in community service activities that address human and community needs. It is a weekend event which occurs in the St. Louis area and happens at least once each semester.  This trip is designed to introduce students to the needs and climate of the inner-city through service and interaction with community members. 

Upcoming Urban Plunge Events 

April 4th-5th!

We will be taking a trip to The Bridge and Mercy Ministries!

This retreat includes working with the Bridge Homeless shelter and Mercy Ministries in St. Louis.

While at The Bridge we will participate in "The Walk".  The Walk will let us experience first-hand a little of what it’s like to have to travel place to place to receive some of life’s basic needs: food, clothing, shelter, medical attention, etc.  We will also be helping them with a service project.

The Mercy Ministries experience will include a tour of the women's home, testimonies from the residents, and a service project!

Please bring bedding and a set of work clothes!

This will be a great weekend and anyone can join us!  Sign up here > Urban Plunge Registration Form
