Mission Nashville Serves the City in Year Two

Youth groups from thirteen states participated in the two weeks of Mission Nashville held in July: 49 youth groups totaling approximately 650 teens during the two weeks. Participants spent their days serving the underprivileged in Nashville, working for The Salvation Army, Second Harvest Food Bank, Hands-on Nashville, Graceworks, the Nashville Rescue Mission, and Operation Stand Down, among others. Mission Nashville and First Church of the Nazarene, in Nashville, also were partners in a sports camp for children living near the church, and youths attending Mission Nashville worked in that camp. Next year Mission Nashville will be held the week of June 23, 2014, and registration will begin in November 2013.
