expand your neighborhood in dayton

Dayton, Ohio might seem to be an unlikely place to visit for a missions experience, until you consider the influx of international refugees in the last 15 years.

Every year refugees come to Dayton to escape political and religious persecution, wars, and extreme poverty. There is great need and many organizations and churches have started to help through various community service projects.

Your team will reach out to families from Africa, Asia, and the Middle East with the love of God.

Your students will also get the opportunity to explore the city during our Adventure Race, and spend the day at a aquatic adventure zone or hiking through a local state park. 

Why we love serving jesus in this neighborhood

Dayton is a melting pot of families from over a dozen countries. We love experiencing the diversity of cultures and supporting our ministry partners as they care for the needs of these refugees (Lev 19:34).
