This team will partner with Pioneer Baptist Church, a small church on the outskirts of Wasilla. Pioneer is in a very rural area where neighbors are generally not churchgoers and keep to themselves. Outreach ministry has been a challenge. In lieu of doing a traditional children's ministry such as VBS, this team will do Center Shot, an archery based day camp that has a lot of strong Bible curriculum rolled in. We will also do a couple of outreach events for the parents of the children who come to the camp. This team may also assist in putting up outdoor recreation equipment. The planned recreation for this mission trip is, sea kayaking, treks in the forest, visit animal sanctuary, disc golf at night, and lots of amazing photography opportunities!
