Bounce Student Disaster Recovery kicks off this week!

by Kyle Crim on June 7, 2015 in Great Commandment

The BOUNCE staff is very excited to welcome all of our teams coming to serve with us in Dallas tomorrow! We're expecting around 85 students and leaders from FBC Rockwall, Spring Creek Fellowship of Big Spring, FBC Chilton, Crosswinds Community Church of Hobbs, NM and FBC Lufkin to serve with us this week. Students and staff will be lodged at Duncanville's First Baptist Church and will be rehabilitating homes in Dallas.

BOUNCE has also partnered with The City of Dallas' People Helping People and Dallas Baptist Association Churches to help make this week possible. We cannot express enough gratitude to our partners.

This week's coordinators are Shawn Edwards (Mission Coordinator), Russell Hill (Construction Coordinator) and Ryan Jespersen (Local Logistics Coordinator and Worship Speaker). The collegiate staff is made up of Stephen Engstrom, Julia Siebelink, Amy Valenta and Kyle Crim. The staff is very excited to serve alongside all of our student missionaries this week. We truly pray that each and every student, leader, staff member and home owner is drawn closer to Christ this week and this summer.

This is just the first week of BOUNCE for the summer. Over the next couple of months, BOUNCE will be traveling to several locations across Texas and Oklahoma to restore hope, rebuild communities and reflect Christ through rehabilitation and disaster recovery projects.
