Overview
Memphis is the city where the blues were born. The history of this city confirms this claim. From B.B. King to Elvis, the blues echo the evidence of the racial divisions that exist even today. Fortunately, there is evidence of God working to repair these divisions. The people of Memphis are open to the life changing words of Jesus Christ. This LeaderTreks site partners with local churches and inner city ministries that desire to reach families all over Memphis with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Your students will be working with a local church to help meet these needs by doing home repairs or helping an inner city ministry through repairs on their building or clean up around the area. In the afternoon your team will have an opportunity to do outreach with children in the area. This site will allow groups to concentrate on work and evangelism.
