ACYOA Mission Trip
"You did not choose me but I chose you. And I appointed you to go and bear fruit, fruit that will last, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask him in my name." John 15:16
The ACYOA Mission Trip is a weekend-long, faith-based service trip for young adults to provide outreach to a mission parish of the Eastern Diocese and its community at large. The ACYOA Central Council revived this initiative in February 2020 by partnering with Habitat for Humanity.
2022 ACYOA Seniors Mission Trip
The ACYOA Mission Trip is a weekend-long, faith-based service trip for young adults to build connections and provide outreach to a mission parish of the Eastern Diocese and its community at large.
The 2022 ACYOA Seniors Mission Trip will take place Thursday, February 17 - Sunday, February 20, 2022. Participants are expected to coordinate and pay for their transportation to/from Atlanta Hartsfield Airport (ATL). Participants must arrive no later than 9:00 PM on Thursday, February 17 and depart no earlier than 6:00 PM on Sunday, February 20.
This trip is open to all young adults ages 18 and up from across the Eastern Diocese that are physically capable of participating on a Habitat for Humanity worksite and interested in providing service and outreach to the Atlanta Mission Parish Community. This trip will be limited to 18 participants, plus a clergyman leader and assistant trip leader. All applications will be thoughtfully reviewed, and acceptances will be announced by January 15, based on an applicant’s essay questions and ability to fully contribute to the mission and purpose of the trip.
There is no cost to register. The full cost of the program is being underwritten by the ACYOA Central Council, using the proceeds of the 2021 Bishop's 5K. Therefore, all participants will be provided lodging, ground transportation, and two meals a day. In addition, the participant fees for Habitat for Humanity will be covered. However, participants will be encouraged to help fundraise.
Applications are DUE by Monday, January 10. Please complete this online application as the first step in your application process. A detailed Fact Sheet for the Mission Trip and Application Form are found below.
