Young people BUMP for God this summer

USA (MNN) — Young people with the EFCA are gearing up for inner city outreach in the United States. The program is called, BUMP. Bump is a week-long urban mission experience
for students.

BUMP
stands for Bridging Urban Mission Project. It's a week long urban missions
program that will be taking place in seven cities in the U-S including St.
Louis, Chicago, Denver, Miami, New York and others.

BUMP
empowers and serves alongside neighborhood Christians as they minister to the
urban community through their local churches. It may mean helping churches with
vacation Bible school, playing with kids, street carnivals, and much more.

According to participating pastors the program
is very effective in reaching kids for Christ.

The experience has also been known to change the heart of those who are doing the
ministry. It opens their eyes to intercultural ministry because the world is literally
in the United States already and they don't have to leave the country to reach
them with the Gospel.

Pray that many of the EFCA churches will see many to turn Christ. Pray also that
those who participate will make outreach an everyday part of their lives.
