The vision of Mission Year is to continue to see, inspire, and join in with a movement of people committed to loving God and loving people in neighborhoods across the country. Our purpose is to develop lifelong disciples, leaders, and advocates who will transform the church, the city, and the world. Our vision is to see the church unified, cultures reconciled, neighborhoods revitalized, and the world redeemed.
Our Mission Year team members root themselves in relationship with their neighbors, devote approximately 32 hours per week (Monday-Thursday) in their neighborhoods at local schools, homeless shelters, food pantries, and other community empowerment organizations (over 1280 hours per team member for the year), attend their local church, and grow their awareness of social justice issues affecting their neighborhoods and city through trainings with local leaders. Our team members represent the diversity of our communities and we committed to being an organization where all are welcome and valued in their racial, ethnic, gender, and sexual identities.
