Each day starts grounded in the word of God through small group Bible study. K-Team participants will learn and grow together as a youth group and individually in their journey with Christ as they join in interactive and engaging discipleship sessions.
K-Teams will partner with Chris Epp (former director of EMM’s Harrisburg Discipleship Center where he worked closely with K-Teams and the YES program), Village Church and other local organizations that are serving their community in Phenix City, Al. and Columbus, Ga. Participants are hosted by local churches in Phenix City, near their outreach location. Accommodations will be simple as participants will stay as a group in church buildings; likely sleeping on the floor and sharing limited bathrooms.

K-Teams will serve low income families in Phenix City’s Five Points community alongside Village Church, who is immersed and active in reviving this low income population. In collaboration with Village Church members and local community development groups, K-Teams will work with at risk children and youth in a summer feeding and education program by providing meals, mentoring, and activities to help them find hope in their present circumstances and for their futures. Outreach activities generally run from 10am to 2pm Monday through Friday and may include preparing and serving meals, organizing programs, serving low income children and youth through crafts, tutoring, life skills, sports and games, as well as other activities that build community and evidence the love of Christ.
Other activities throughout the week may include prayer walks, cultural learning experiences, team-building experiences, or service projects.
