What is Youth Week?
Youth Week is a local mission trip and camp experience that began during the summer of 2012. It was designed with the specific intention of creating an event that was impactful on our community while fostering growth and development within the lives of students.
The basic structure of Youth Week is quite simple, we spend half of the day serving in the West Michigan area and half the day singing, playing, sharing, and experiencing the love of Jesus Christ. We serve in soup kitchens, at rescue missions, help clean up local parks and community associations. We actively seek out engaged, local and long-term partners and come alongside to help in the work they are already doing in the community. Adding to that is a deep passion for tending to the physical, social, and spiritual development of each student. After working each day, we come back for a time of games, activities, worship, learning, and sharing together in small groups. At its core, Youth Week is looking to equip and serve students as we in turn serve our community, pursuing justice in all of our environments.
Fair Haven Church is home base, it’s where we worship, play and sleep. It is organized and led by Youth Pastors from all of the Harbor Churches campuses.
