Wildfire!

Wildfire! is Meaningful

Wildfire! Youth Mission and Ministry provides what all churches wish to offer their youth – a hands-on mission experience that makes a real difference in the lives of real people.   We want to help spread the love of God like wildfire!

 

Wildfire! is Affordable

Wildfire! is special because it offers a powerful and meaningful Wesleyan-based mission experience – but at a low cost.

 

Wildfire! is Mission and Community Minded

 

Wildfire! is a week of mission work. Each day the group will begin with worship. Then, it will break into small groups to do mission work throughout the Superior, Wisconsin area.  Each evening the groups will go out to have a fun outing.  All this gives time for youth to bond, work, and create friendships together – all while growing deeper spiritually.

Wildfire! is Specialized for Growth

 

Wildfire! Youth Mission and Ministry offers “separate yet common” experiences for both Middle schoolers and High schoolers. We try to pair youth of similar age for mission activities, but also have time to mix with all the youth during the general activities. This allows youth groups to have a common mission experience and still provides time for youth to work with other youth their own age.
