I’ve had the pleasure of working with Sierra Service Project (SSP) for several years now. It is a Christian youth service ministry that has been our resource for mission trips for five years now. I’m the Director of Christian Education at University Park United Methodist Church in Denver and I’ve served on the SSP Board of Directors for two years. It’s been my pleasure to organize and participate in a number of summer mission trips of our youth. Sierra Service Project totally coordinates our projects from the moment we arrive at the site, and I can tell you that it’s the best organization we’ve ever had the good fortune to be a part of. Trust me, I know what it’s like to have to plan and coordinate a mission trip on your own.
