What do Youth Leaders say about Reach Beyond Mission?
“Last summer we were blessed to work with Reach Beyond Mission in Washington D.C. From the outset it was
an amazing process. We were a large group (50+) but the RBM staff made every part of the planning process
very easy. Everything was done with purpose from the way they set up the week, to how they rotate groups through different work sites, to the speakers they brought in. Every single component was intentional. Our experience with RBM was far more than just one week of serving somewhere; their focus on advocacy and education has caused ripples that have continued back in our home community."
"Everything from your philosophy and theology to the details is so carefully thought out and executed, and for all of that I am so grateful."
"We especially appreciated the biblical framing around the social justice themes."
"I have been on numerous mission trips for both adults & youth and this was hands-down the very best mission trip I have ever participated in."
"Our youth are changed. They are aware and
want to start doing things around our community. So much learning happened. Thank you for that."
"Thank you for hosting such a great week! We appreciate your open and inclusive groups. All our youth feel welcomed with open arms. God is definitely working in and through you."
"The RBM components (Morning Focus, late afternoon activity/game, evening presentations, worship) were on point; more than I could have imagined. From the Morning Focus times, the group gained a deeper understanding of the biblical stories that were shared. We were able to apply those lessons to our evolving convos throughout the week. The afternoon activities/games helped the group appreciate the realities of cyclical poverty, and how that affects our neighbors locally. The evening presentations helped us with topics we can continue unpacking after our week of mission work."
