Mission Madness in Hampton, VA

Mission Madness is a weekend retreat for youth groups with a focus on community based mission work.  In years past, the students have painted homes, built decks, landscaped yards, built trails, fed the hungry, visited the sick, and just loved their neighbors.  The weekend not only meets physical needs but also focuses on the spiritual needs of our students.  It's a great ministry event that helps bless all those involved.   Register here.
